It doesn't really sound like too bad of an arrangement.......IF you can get a combine in there. Does the owner think a combine will go in there? Who's going to combine it? 'Might be some value to you if you could get the straw also for bedding? 'Guess I'm wondering why you have hay equipment if hay is of no value to you. Only other option is for you to be paid for your labor in establishing the alfalfa.

I do have a combine so that's not the problem. As for the hay not being of value to me.... I meant if I baled the barley for hay. Not worth much to sell it that way but might still be worth it. I do mine in small squares and around here the only people who really want that are horse people. Barley hay would be do for a horse but I doubt if most horse people would buy it.

Right.....barley hay is hard to sell. I understand. Do you have the means to put up a small grain cover crop as silage bales? That would get the crop off earlier and give the alfalfa a better second cut. Maybe the landowner would give you the first cutting for your seeding work. Where are you located as time is running out on a fall seeding of alfalfa?

South Central Montana, dry enough and often open winters, fall seeded alfalfa usually does pretty poor. Would plow this fall and seed in the spring, wouldn't hay it at all the first year.
