Its me again the aspiring farmer... just havent found any land yet lol. However a freind of mine has a few acres and is also wanting to buy some calfs next year. He was involved in 4H when he was younger so at least one of us knows what we are doing. My question is this. Is it a good idea to buy calfs in the early spring and let them eat ONLY grass until it is time to sell them in the fall? He says the pasture he has is good grass. Another question. Say I find a place that hasnt had cows on it in years... should I sew new grass for them to eat? Once again thanks again for any advice...
What type of grass is on it? Weed pressure? Make sure water source is good and there is shade somewhere around. Good Fence is very important when you turn a calf out on a place he's never been on before as well. Good luck hope you make a pocket full of cash!
