livestock, lease agreements, cow herds
This publication is intended to illustrate a method of determining a fair lease agreement. The budget and coefficients were representative of a particular resource base in 1989. Individual producers may have very different costs and production coefficients for their cow herds. As author, I do not wish to imply that lease agreements should be based on the same proportion of receipts as depicted in this example budget. There also is an example of a written lease agreement in an appendix at the end of the manuscript. This is only an example to illustrate the type of issues the two parties to a lease agreement may wish to consider. Specific lease agreements may be entirely different then the example lease agreement.
