There are do`s and don`ts in setting up a cow lease. First, the lease is expected to run from weeding in a year to weaning next year. The annual lease is expected to end on the day the calves are weaned. On this date, the calf harvest is either sold or distributed between the two trading partners. Each partner is responsible for its share in harvesting calves after the stop. Remember that the owner of the cow receives the income from the cow. This in turn indicates that there should be no joint leasing agreement for cattle rental across the sector. But that`s what I tend to come across. Each rental agreement can and must be adapted to the business situation. At regular intervals, I get a call asking what a fair lease agreement for cattle is.
Normally, one partner wants to own the cows and the other partner wants to direct the cows. Their question is usually, how should they share the calf harvest? I am saying that a fair lease for cattle is that both partners share the calf harvest from the cattle herd in the same ratio as they share the costs of production. Now let`s decide on the distribution of production costs. Remember that the owner of the cow receives not only 33% of the calf harvest, but also the income of the head cow. As soon as the cow`s income is added, the cow owner should receive in this example 41% of the gross income generated in this cow lease business. If it is a herd of eternal cows, the owner of the cow usually makes available the replacement tinctures or the raised spare cows. Even if you may wish, do not insert the development of replacement tincture into the cow leases. It just doesn`t work and can quickly lead to disagreements – and even legal action. Replacement shades work best when developed by a third party, and the cow owner pays the development costs and then transfers the pre-tested heifers to mature breeding herds each year shortly after the weaning period. Let`s take a detailed look at this proposed joint venture and see how these two trading partners could make a “fair” deal: that is, how they share the production costs and total revenues of the rented cow herd. A cattle rental or sharing contract allows the two counterparties to share the production costs and therefore the income of the cow herds.
The great thing about a Share Lease is that production costs can be shared in many different ways, as long as the calf harvest is shared in the same ratio as expenses. In this case, the working breeder could develop the replacement shades every year, and these new cows all belong to him and are kept away from the lease. Now the owner of the cow receives the income from slaughter only from the cows originally rented. The working farmer receives the income from the slaughter of replacement putures when they are finally extracted from the herd. Often, the cow owner is an experienced farmer who retires, and the other business partner is a younger rancher who wants to enter the beef cow business. . . .
