Is it just me or are syndicates to blame for the constant rising costs for leases. Ive just looked at the 1 on ebay and this got me thinking again.... Ok now I understand that 1/2 dozen mates could all chip in and split the cost of a 3k lease for £500 each. But in todays climate what would they get for that money??? Perhaps 800 acres and certainley perhaps not overly good. Realisticly if it had Red and Roe the lads may get a Red and 2 or 3 Roe for their money each.. I know that recently a forestry mnager was bragging he could get £7.20 plus vat per hectacre minimum all day long as there were too many syndicates looking for ground and would easy pay that sort of money!!! Now Im not trying to knock syndicates by any means or manners. After all Im in 1 and actively looking for another. But Ill only part with my hard earned money for the right syndicate.
Are wee to blame for the rising costs? I believe we are!! What do you think?
