In IA and MO the going rate for hunting leases is $6.00 to $10.00 per acre. I would think KS would be the same/similar. I lease about 650 acres around the farms I own and then sell some hunts to cover the leases. We do pretty well but I'll have to start doing better! I think its gonna be another tough year!
Thanks for reading & watching, I appreciate your support! I just got back in the office here late tonight, was up in ND filming pair of nice farm auctions yesterday & today. Got to zip down to Des Moines tomorrow morning to record some audio for "Machinery Show", but will pick up on the JD 4000 tractor story when I get back tomorrow afternoon.
yeah we got a couple old ford tractors too. i not really happy with them. the old ford 8000 was used for some plowing, got stuck, and we ended up pulling it out with the farmall Super MDTA. lol it definally a clunker compared to the ih 1066.
sorry to hear you have gone green. haha. not sure I could ever do it. its funny because my family is a ford red tractor family and one of my best friends family is chevy green tractor family. There is a lot of busting chops going on every day.
we just plant milo and it looks great but tuesday we cut 200 bu. and it tested 20 so we stoped. I knew it was wet but we needed some before we ween our cattle so we decided to cut some before it rained on it. how is it looking out in western Kansas?

Hey, Adam. Things are good up here -- a little on the dry side, actually. But, it's stayed cooler than normal -- June actually was warmer than July has been, on average. We're finally getting some heat the last few days, though.
Corn looks really good, though. I was actually down in Hoxie over the weekend. Man, it looks nice around there! They've had great conditions this year.
Hey, by the way, Bob Reed's going to get inducted into the Kansas High School sports Hall of Fame (or whatever it's called) in KC later this summer. Pretty cool.
Thankyou for the welcome. I do not have a farm (yet), however I volunteer at the local CSA garden and have plans on having a home garden in the future. Our goal is to obtain land, and have a small operation on it. I am trying to learn as much as I can in the mean time.
i,m student now and i,m working on a project which is about applying the pure isolates of azotobacter and azospirillum on soybean unfortunately in iran many stresses occurs during growth season.drought stress is the major one.yesterday i cheched one of the root plants and i didnt see any nodules on the root meanwhile i have inoculated the seeds befor planting.i,m really confused.what do you think obout this problem?take care.
no not spoon feeding it at all. we put 60 lbs of N on it. the new combine worked great. with as much wheat as we cut this year (our most bu. ever) it would have taken us a long time to cut it with the old machine. what was your guys ave around there? how are the fall crops looking?
we got our first cutting of alfalfa all put up. Supposed to get the our new combine tomorrow i believe. I have been driving a silage truck for a guy on and off the last 2 weeks. and geting ready to plant Milo so we have been staying busy not getting in before 11 on most nights but that is why i love this life so much there is always something to do. what about you how is every thing looking out there
Hey, Adam. Great to hear from you. How many acres of milo do you all have? Are folks still growing about as much milo as they used to? I know my old man tells me there's not as much as there used to be up around Hoxie.
Yep, sure enough -- you put that hay down and you'll have a frog-strangler! Ha! We're looking at a mostly dry week this week. We can use it! I think most farmers around here will get their corn planted this week. Guys over east of us in IL are having a hell of a time -- some haven't even turned a wheel yet! Pretty rough go there this year. I suppose something will get planted eventually, though!
Hey, good luck getting planting wrapped up and everything! Stay safe out there!
