Leasing Agricultural Land for Grazing, Hunting or Livestock

This webinar, funded by the Southern Extension Risk Management Education Center, will discuss the legal issues and negotiation considerations for parties contemplating grazing, hunting, and livestock leases. Although historically many of these lease agreements have been done on a handshake, it is important for landowners, producers, and hunters to ensure written leases are in place to protect their interest. This webinar will focus on numerous issues, including why leasing land can be beneficial to landowners and tenants, why written leases are important, how to calculate lease rates, landowner liability, drafting a liability waiver, and tips and terms to consider when drafting a grazing, hunting, and livestock lease. Participants will be given a PDF version of the recently-developed Ranchers’ Agricultural Leasing Handbook, which contains discussion of the various legal issues at play, as well as checklists for each of the types of leases covered in this webinar and sample language for lease terms as well.
