Why would they ask for taxes?Call it whatever you want it’s just built into the rental price anyway.Why wouldn’t the landlords ask for taxes?
If your area is like mine most guys seem to need as much land as possible so if you won’t pay it someone else will.
IMO Cut throat greed between farmers has fueled land rental prices more than landlords.
Uhm well, that particular block was a fully functioning farm for the owners previous to Andjelic.View attachment 158114
Image is on the edge of the rented land in RM 213 mentioned above, (easier to see than under the red). Is the google image just from an exceptionally wet year, or are those permanent potholes? Would need a 12 ft seed drill to get between some of them, and even that would need sectional control. It says they have made a lot of improvement over the past three years, would be interesting to see the outcome. That could explain the weeds for three years.
Edit, here is the functioning link:Available Land – Andjelic Land
Funny how 20 some years ago in southern SASK, you couldn't even rent the land out for the land taxes. Looking at the land rents now for this land and the condition of that land with all the pot holes, its no wonder Andjelic has to post an ad for possible renters. The grass is not greener on the other side. Old timers used to say never make a decision to rent land covered in snow unless you know it! Seems like to me, today a lot of land owners think their land is all equal in value across the whole R Ms acreage . Any ways, Hats off to those guys and gals that farm the pot hole country!Just be glad you’re not farming in Alberta then.
Those rent rates are pretty cheap compared to what we’re paying here.
No doubt it is likely productive ground, and the crops I've seen in the area have been impressive. I just can't imagine a big farmer with big modern equipment being willing, (or even able) to work around such obstacles. That is why I ask if the image is from an especially wet year, and most years it would be fenceline to fenceline?Uhm well, that particular block was a fully functioning farm for the owners previous to Andjelic.
No matter what it looks like on the map.
Welcome to farming in eastern Saskatchewan and the conditions we deal with here.
The amount of grain that comes to the city of Yorkton from the surrounding area is equivalent to the entire amount exported through the port of Thunder bay per year.
Wonder why our highways are all shot?
