I have a 52 acre farm which I own. Right now I have only 5 cows. I am going to AI them this year and hopefully do that every year from here out so I can get rid of the bull. Most of the land is wooded with only about 10 acres cleared right now. I am working to clear most of the remaining land. Some day I hope to have 20 or more cows on this place. I do rotationally graze the land in the spring, summer and fall. In the winter I feed purchased hay with a bale graze system. Some year I am going to figure out how to rotation graze all winter. The past two years I have sold all our calves direct from the farm to neighbors and family as beef. I take them to the butcher and they pick them up. Right now the hanging weights are between 400# and 500# at 14 to 24 months. I am hoping with AI to be able to jump that up using better bulls.
Interesting reading all your posts!
