Tax accessor website....? What's that? Lol. My county still has paper maps for everything it'll be a long while before they go digital.

On my phone I use fields area measure app. It's free and simple to use.

In our climate we feed about 6 4x5 rolls per head over the winter. I'd think in your environment you will feed less than that. Maybe 3-4 rolls?

Thats enough if you have any kind of winter grazing. I can get by on two per cow per year but I scratch in some oats and while I have calves, they will be young fall borns. Saying that if you have a barn to keep some in, this is probably a good year to put some up for a reserve even if you have to buy it. My reserve was almost empty so I made about 75 extra.

Allocate half as much for them.

No need unless you simply want to. They can eat a round bale just fine.

Wean them and sell them that is the way the beef cattle business is supposed to work.
