    Got an invitation last Monday to come out and bid a very nice cattle farm. Stopped by yesterday and talked with the fore(wo)man. Farm is basically a weekend retreat for gentleman who lives across the state line in a large metro area. I didn't measure the actual yard and barn lot BUT I did measure the ROW road frontage which is about 15 ft from the shoulder of the road to the fences. All mowing on the ROW's is OUTSIDE the fence. No mowing inside the fence. The farm hands will take care of that. There are places that are to be sprayed with roundup along the road side and also underneath all the fences. All told, the ROW mowing equals out to 1.5 miles. If my calculations are correct with 15 ft between the road and fence that should equate to roughly 2.85 acres. Here are some pics I snapped. THese are of what is considered the barn lot. The bottom pic is a dog pen although there in no dog present. It does however have a 6 ft gate going into it.

    here's some pics of the road frontage. the top pic the mowing stops at the big tree you see. the next pic mowing goes up to the intersection where the traffic lights are. That bank you see between the drainage gutters is to be kept sprayed. Also at the end of this fence line you actually turn right around that corner and there is another half mile of mowing along a county road. Most all of it is fairly easy mowing with the only obstacles beings some mailboxes and one driveway. third picture mowing goes all the way to the third mailbox you see. Fourth picture I'l let you figure out where you stop...LOL. and fifth picture mowing goes to the third utility pole and then over to the driveway. The house in the picture was a yard that I mowed last year for $50 for an elderly woman who has since sold the property to the gentleman who owns the property that I am putting this bid together for. Possibility it could be included in this at some point in time.
