GOOD GUIDE: The bull rental and leasing publication walks you through the steps to consider whether you are looking to lease a bull or to rent one out.
Having a document signed by both parties ensures details are understood.

The only cardinal rule that applies to a bull rental or lease agreement is that no two agreements are the same. A new publication from the Iowa Beef Center at Iowa State University has the information you need whether you’re in the market to lease a bull or have a bull ready to rent.

Author Patrick Wall says the content of the Bull Rental and Lease Agreement Guide is organized into five steps, with explanation and cost examples that offer easy-to-follow information. “A written document signed by both parties is a much safer way of ensuring that details are understood by all,” he says. “Specifying upfront who is responsible for costs of feed, transportation, health and other aspects takes uncertainty out of the picture.”

Wall, an ISU Extension beef specialist, encourages people to download and look through the publication before they close a deal. “Trust is an important part of any agreement, including a bull lease,” he says. “This free publication can help provide that trust.”
