Renting pasture for grazing livestock is a fairly common practice in Indiana but one a Purdue Extension forage specialist says landowners and producers need to carefully discuss.

When it comes to making rental agreements, there are several considerations for both parties beyond cost. "Just like with any rental agreement, individuals are encouraged to understand that there are responsibilities that the landowner has and that the renter has. And some of these are negotiable," Keith Johnson said. "It's important to have a conversation about what those negotiable points are and then move toward a more firm price."
