I'm considering getting a heifer and a bull calf and raising them up... bull for meat, heifer for milk. I'm looking into costs and no site ive found seems to break it down very well. we have limited pasture and will be acquiring them next spring(so i hope to have the pasture professionally plowed and planted before they come). their field would be about an acre and a half. I plan on getting a smaller framed breed like jersey for the milk cow and I'm in the air about a bull calf. . .
