Good article NovaTech. Thanks for posting the link!! I know the measurements to be performed would offer a rough estimate of how many cows a given pasture would support but I'm thinking that NC Angus, in addition to the offered measurements, could tighten that number up a good bit if he sent a forage sample or two in for nutrient analysis. This is fairly inexpensive, $15 -$25?, and the resulting feedback could make a huge difference.

your asking a loaded q.how good is the grass on the place.do you have a good mix of summer an winter grasses.do you have access to hay.so when the grass runs short you can hay them.with that land you should be able to handle 5 cows an a bull.or 6 cows if you AI breed them.
