Iowa Beef Center Fact Sheet Provides Guidance for Grazing Contracts
Farm and Ranch Guide
The lack of a futures market for forages can make it difficult for land owners and beef producers to establish a fair-market value, particularly for standing forages. Establishing that value, however, can make the difference between profit and loss for a beef operation in a given year. That’s why Iowa State University specialists Patrick Gunn and Joe Sellers created a new fact sheet, Pasture and Grazing Arrangements for Beef Cattle, for those who use pasture and grazing rentals in their operations.
