    400 for 2 cuts, 250 for one around here…Are you in a dairy area?

    Crazy prices.

    You will have lads on hungry ground looking 250 an acre per cut and they wont have spent a penny on p&k in years.

    I took 13 acres for 120 an acre, ill slurry it and urea. I will be off it by mid to late may. Myself and the land owner were happy. I have taken this bit of ground off him a few years running.

    Lots of land owners who leased land at €500 an acre plus this year, will have the hand out for a good while looking to actually get paid it.

    For 2 cuts you'd nearly be as well off rent it altogether
