So I hay ten hayfields that aren't mine. Five of them are weak and I have been building them slowly with cow manure. The second cuts on these five is minimal. There is a local sheep guy in the area that I have offered them up to for him to graze. One of those five have a decent amount of bittersweet that sheep will eat.

What do you guys think of this idea? Net gain or loss?

My thought is I'm adding cow manure and getting the hay, while he is adding some sheep manure, eating some weeds but is growing sheep on the second cut. Other than the landowners might start liking him and his sheep more than me and my tractors, what do you think?

Thanks, Mike
