On the weekends i have free time and need to make some extra cash. I have experience in catching and stacking hay both on wagons and barns but havent done so in a little over a year. I was hoping someone here can help me out finding maybe a website or some form of action i can take to landing me a small gig bailing hay. I was thinking theres a website or local ads but so far i havent been able to find much. I live in Indpls., IN. so i would need something close to greenwood, mooresville, new lisbon or greenfield.

Brandon - Go to local feed stores, farm equipment dealers and auction barns - even the local Tractor Supply store(s). If the stores have a bulletin board, post an ad that you're available for hire. If they don't have a bulletin board, ask the store management if they would pass along your name & number to anyone who comes in looking for help. Your phone will be ringing in no time.

Last year, I found a custom baler by asking the local Vermeer dealer.

Definately pound the ground. I have gotten almost all my custom work by talking directly to prospective customers. And never turn down "small stuff" unless you are really busy. Its good advertising if nothing else.

Do you have a local farm paper or shopper?

Here we have a few.

On the Farm,a 4 county farm paper that goes to all farmers.

The Peach,full of ads and goes into all the small town papers in SW Mn.

Wilmont Shopper,it's online now and covers local area.

Farm Bearue paper in Iowa has alot of ads also.

Word of mouth is prly your best advertising,if someone hires you SHOWUP and be on time.
