Some producers find it advantageous to lease their cattle to other producers either for cash or for a share of the calf crop. This may be in the course of ultimately transferring the herd — e.g., to a child or other new owner. It may also be used by a producer who has been forced to liquidate his/her herd and wishes to re-establish a new herd. This checklist has been adapted from Doye, Sahs & Coe, Breeding Livestock Lease Agreements, F-571 and Doye, Sahs & Coe, Stocker Livestock Lease Agreements, F-572 (Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service).
