Renting Bulls
« on: February 25, 2013, 07:01:36 PM »
Anyone ever rent bulls out? We have a neighbor who wants to rent one from us and have never done it before. Prices you have charged and details in the agreement? Anything would be helpful.

We've leased a bull to a friend of ours, and only because we know a lot about how he manages his cattle. The agreement needs to very clear about all the details, and take into consideration anything that might happen. A lot of people who don't want to invest in a bull for whatever reason tend to be the same people who have more relaxed herd management and such. We don't consider leasing bulls to general public or at all in most cases. You need to know who ur working with or else you stand a good chance at getting burned.

PM me if you want a copy of the terms we wrote up. I think I may have something I can email you.

The commercial guys here pay $15-20/cow/month for each bull.    That will most likely increase this year.   About the same as to AI to a less expensive bull.  A promoted clubby type bull will run 3500 a month or more.  The renter is liable while the bull is on their property.  Care and feed can be an issue.  If the bull needs vet treatment, the renter should be liable for the vet cost just as if they owned the bull.  If the bull wrecks a gate, that is their cost. I once loaned a bull at no cost and the guy told me he did me a favor for not charging me for the gate the bull wrecked when penned next to cows in heat. He also hauled it to the sale barn with out saying anything. As Leanbeef suggests, know the outfit and make sure an agreement is in writing and up front.

Why, yes, I did grow up in a barn; thank you for asking.
