Since You Asked Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? A columi answerisg questions }-xg.if;.f%f!tf!A WfmmV*. submitted by Journal readers ".-.-.•.v.-.v.v.v.v.-. QUESTION: What is a go«d rental price per acre for al/aHa hayland in Otter Tail County? ANSWER: It is difficult lo state a rental per acre on raj-ground because of yield and quality differences, and other factors such as field location, size and uncertain hay marXet. However good alfalfa hayland is sometimes rented on halves with the totals paying a share of Ihe baling. Mixed or grass hay rent would be less or about a one-third lo two-thirds share rent. Based on last years reports, I would estimate the cash rent on hayland to be between $15 and J35 per acre.
