Darrin Steinert Depends on how many acres are produced annually 04/29/2012 @ 1:24pm We only produce around 60 acres of hay, so we hire it done by one of our neighbors. He rolls up around 20,000 bales annually so he always has the latest and greatest of equipment. He is only 1/4 mile up the road and we do a bunch of labor swapping so by years end there is very little money that needs to change hands. In my eyes, trading labor vs. trading $ is always the better route.
