My home is on a 10 acre field...When it works out,..someone swathes and bales the hay...and in the past, picked them up and took them to their farm.
Usually within 2 weeks after cut..I liked having the field bare going into winter...
This outfit cut it last year,..moved the bales over by the entrance..and picked them up in a few weeks..This year the bales (20) were left in the field, since June...
I've tried to understand when the hay guys plans on taking them away, like last year...no luck on communications..
So my plan is to try craigs list..maybe 50$/bale...they measure to 6' x 4'. I have reference from a place that bought it for awhile and fed it to their horses..and they liked it...I have nothing other than the 8n...the buyer would need to provide the loader and transpertation...Its good hay...

The hay guy would get half of whatever I get for it...That should appeal to them...eliminates the need for picking it up...hassling with buyers...

I would have to talk to the guy who baled it- he may be counting on it for feed this winter and has had a mechanical issue or some other reason he has left them. The number of things that could have caused this is nearly unlimited.

Certainly with a written lease, and to many even without one, the crop belongs to the person tending it- he may have money invested in fertilizer or lime, and certainly has equipment time in harvesting the crop to this point. For you to sell the hay without making some contact with him is not the right thing to do.

That's what I think about that deal.

Depends on the initial deal you made with him. In some instances it may legally be his
hay that you are trying to sell. It can't be too good if he has chosen to leave it
setting in the field that long. You should make a better effort to talk to him, not us.-------------Loren

If you want the one who baled it to come back another year you had better make sure he doesn't want the hay before selling it to someone else.

Lots of farmers leave the hay sit in the field until the ground freezes to haul it, I don't understand it either! If it's dry
enough to bale it's dry enough to get them off the field. I would be out there all night moving them, I have seen it start
raining and not quite until it turned to snow!

WOW, what a can of worms.

Are you renting the ground out or just letting them cut hay? May not be yours to give away or sell.

May be considered abandoned property but if so I'll bet that farm stuff like hay has special rules and wait times.

Really need to either get a hold of the guy who baled it or consult an attorney BEFORE proceeding.

I don't think a 50/50 split will appeal to the guy who cut, raked and baled it. He has equipment, fuel, labor, netwrap or string costs.
More equitable would a 70/30 (70 him, 30 you).

But I would give him a deadline to move it before you sell it.

If it's the same person, he posted this over on NewAgTalk as well. From what he said over there this is I think what the deal is:

* He owns the ground
* He verbally agreed to let the other party cut and bale the hay on the 10 acres for shares. Landowner got 60% share, other party got 40% share.
* It was not clearly stated but I inferred the other party had no input costs (e.g. fertilizer)
* Last year the other party cut, baled and moved hay to edge of field right away, then took the hay away a few weeks later and bought the 60% share from the land owner
* This year they made an identical agreement including moving the hay off the field immediately which the other party did not live up to
* It was not clear if the other party had first rights to buy the 60% share of the landowner or if they agreed to a price per bale.
* Other party is refusing to communciate - e.g. repeated phone calls not answered and messages not returned

I have not stake in this, just my interpretation of the situation based on the discussion and his comments on the post over on the NAT site.

Sorry I screwed up the share %. I typed it backwards. It should be:

* Landowner 40%, Other Party who cut the hay 60%

Registered letter to the share cropper. Explain the issue and intent to sell if no reply. Jim

I think that is a good start, if the guy comes back, give share of the money, I also think your asking price should be about par, I get $75 for good hay.
