We have a bit to much grass to graze, there has not been any stock on it since February, its getting more like a hay or silage field crop, and will just get wasted if try to graze it,
We are thinking of selling the grass, what would be a fair price per bale to sell it for,
We could cut it and Ted it, but thought fairest way let them bale it and cart it off,
That way any complaints about bale weight would be there problem not ours,

So basically what would be a fair price to ask per bale off the field, with them baling it ?


TIA

£5 per bale or £50 per acre assuming if they do all the work.

All cash. 👌

Just give £40 an acre for cutting grass, I’ve gotta pay contractor to do everything to it including the haulage, he charges £15 a bale for that, hauling it 7mile

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
