Income from pasture ownership may include capital gains as well as annual income from pasture rentals. Example 1.

While grazing season is underway in some parts of Nebraska, it`s still worth checking pasture lease agreements and who`s responsible for what. Here are some typical thoughts on the pasture lease and how to manage it: Another thought is the Pasture Drilling Program (LFP) for Drought Grazing. If the drought is severe enough, as in 2012, a payment is earned for the LFP. In this situation, if the lessor is paid for the entire expected lease, the LFP will compensate the tenant for part of his loss.. . . .
