What is the going pay for farm help? We hired a handyman who lives down the road to build some fence for us he and his son and when we got the bill we shit. The fence was about 150 yd long they took out the old and put the new up,post every 8-10 ft two wood and a steel T post took them 4 to 5 days and the bill was $2600 thats just labor we bought all the materials our self the guys wife just dyed of cancer so I didnt say anything I just payed it. I thought of hireing this guy to be a part time help during the harvest but if he wants that much I dont think I could afford it. What are your thoughts what do you pay seasonal help like a truck driver or grain cart opperator?
