What would a competitive salary be for a farm manager for a farm in SK of 18,000 acres? Someone who actually knew what was going on and could make decsions without the farm owner, Manage operations efficently etc.and .understood agronomy.

Sure it depends on roles and responisbilty. If it were you, woudl you be willing to help the guy rent 1000acres. If the farm manager was able to rent 1000 acres, and pay the farm owner say $80 per acre (80,000) for all the non input expenses, equipment, labour fuel etc, this would reduce the farm owners costs/acre somewhat, and help offset a higher salary.

80 dollars per acre isn’t going to cover very many costs for owners. It’s a good chance owner is closer to 150$ or 200$ acre for equipment,labor and fuel.

$80 per acre is a bit low but it is not $150. Things like grain storage and trucking of grain both off the field and to market can add up to a significant dollar value per acre depending on how far you have to haul.
