How much should I charge a neighbor cattle farmer wanting to chop 14 of silage of our corn?
I have a neighbor cattle farmer who asked me the other day if I would be interested in selling him 12-14 of silage for his cattle. Has a custom chopper come do it and bag it. So I’m wanting to know first if this would be at all to my benefit and if so what I should charge him for it?
