At 9:30 minutes...a $1000 for a chicken tractor...no way!

Make them out of 2x2's, chicken wire, and old bicycle tires. Add a solar fencer, and the tractor is predator proof. Less than $300 easy.

Great video. Thanks for posting.

You're going to need a barn for all the cattle, water, hay for the winter, two acres of pasture per cow (double that to rotate).

You can probably sell the cattle for $1,000 each (minus expense), so figure what you need to live on.

My suggestion? Keep your day job and buy a farmette. Just as much fun without the financial pressure.

So true!

No matter how creatively one grazes his cattle, the pay off at market time is breakeven at best.

African beef is now being imported, I assume, to depress the American beef industry...and it's working.

My hay supplier has raised beef all his life. He's reduced his herds by 90%. His recent reply to me, "I can sell a yearling for only what I have in it, I'm getting out."

My suggestion? Keep your day job and buy a farmette. Just as much fun without the financial pressure.

Right again. I would add that the best reason for raising cattle right now is for personal food security.

My advice to my friends and family: if you have a couple of acres sitting idle, put a cow or two on it.

You demonstrate you lack of knowledge thinking you could successfully raise cattle on such small acreage

Don't tell that to my cows. They might get the idea that they deserve more land.

Two acres of reasonably decent grazing grass is more than enough for one cow and her calf.

Want to have fresh beef each year? Find yourself a healthy pregnant brood cow, about 5 years old with a good history of easy calving. After she calves, have her bred back by an AI service ($40). Put her out on an acre of grass and let her graze. She'll need about a half bale of hay per day supplement. More in the winter, of course. She will raise you a beef calf every year for at least another 5 years.

Mind you, I'm grazing multiple dairy cows, which require twice as much grass and hay. All on three acres of pasture.

Any questions?
