Yup... Actually Alaskan has a Masters I believe in pasture management? He could go in and assess your land and give you help in setting up and maintaining your Livestock venture.
For what its worth If your neighbors do that do you again. Invest in some fly predators. They work....
I plan on doing fly predators when I get started with chickens again. Also Phoneix flys do a great job keeping Regular nuisance flies at bey. Phoneix fly or AKA:Soldier fly larvae are an excellent source of protien for your chickens as well as being Stellar at compost break down.
I could raise cattle in a 24 x 24 but it would be difficult to keep them healthy. I dont know how much exercise Cattle need.
I have had horses almost fifty years now. and all but fifteen of that was within a boarding facility. Mostly 24 x 24 corrals with minimal turn out. Actually NO unsupervised turn out at all. I contended with horses that didnt know how to cross water or go down hill or up hill. Later on when I grew into more experience I realized it all was Partially a failure on my part and of the system in place with boarded horses.
If I were to get into cattle I would research their needs not only from a diet and health point of view but from a management point. What to do with manure... Fly management... Worming regumines... Hoof trimming.... Yes hoof trimming. Vaccines antibiotics.... What feeds to stay away from. I have never been around cattle with the exception of petting one at the fair. Therefore I would NEED to know these things before I could even try.
For instance while you can run sheep and goats together they have different mineral needs. Sheep cant have Copper Goats need it.... Goats need Aluminium Sulfate Or an equivalent to keep from developing urinary calculi.
Interesting post Deb. This yahoo next door researched nothing. He has goats and chickens too and doesn't haul off manure. I asked him to go in on fly predators but he wasn't interested. He had to spend a fortune on feed and the cows never did get very fat. He butchered the cows long ago and then decided to raise hogs! LOL Another disaster. One attacked him so it went to the freezer, the other got loose and is roaming! We're not zoned for cows or pigs here. Poor guy.
