HI Mike

Look up custom rates online and see what others are charging. In PA If I understand thing there are only about 35 farmers that take a few minutes to fill out the papers.

If time to bale is an issue plant a different type that is long or shorter. One timothy I plant, yields a huge first cutting, in a Aflafla / Timothy Mix This year was 162/acre on 5.5 acre field and 183/ acre on a 3.75 acre field. these are 3 year old fields and a normal for me for age is 7-9 years if you feed it good and watch cutting at wrong moon signs etc.

Hi Teddy,

I forgot all about early & late maturity grasses & such (yeah, Im' still a little green when it comes to seed selection & planting. :v)) That is going to come in very handy with all of that acreage & only 7' of cut. I am getting better at cutting by the moons. It seems if you blend the foresight of the Almanac with the "instant" forecast from the NWS, one can make good dry hay.

I don't know if the rates apply to "antique" custom work, but I do know a plow pulled consumes fuel regardless. Guess I'll set a rate, maybe based on an avarage of rates from around the area, see how much gas the tractor sucks & how long the whole thing takes & adjust if necessary.
