Looking for costs related to cutting and baling green feed.

Hello, we are in a drought situation again in a pocket in western Canada. Have a neighbour offering standing oats to be cut for green feed. I'm wondering if anyone has any cost estimates per hour, tonne or acre for a) swathing b) baling c) loading and hauling round bales.

For Swathing we charge $15/acre

Baling is $15/bale for twine

Loading and hauling depends on distance etc
