    I know I need a tractor with bucket, hay swather, baler, bale spreader, a 3/4 ton or 1 ton truck.

    Are you planning on running cattle and producing your own hay?

    Cattle handling equipment should be first on the list. So important.
    Chute, alley, tub, corrals. Be sure you can work them alone if needed.
    For hay:
    Tractor with removable bucket for disking and seeding. Disk. Seeder. Plane if you need one. Depends on the seeder. Swather. Rake (to turn and combine the hay) Baler. Harrowbed to pick up and stack the hay.

    Auger is always nice for putting in fence posts.
    Box scraper
    Mower

    Just off the top of my head

    That's a good plan. You can always upgrade as you make profit with your cows. :)

    Something to think about. When we started haying we did the disking and seeding then hired out the cutting, raking, baling and harrowbed. When we started we traded baled hay for the work. Just something to consider for starting out.

    It depends on what your planting, when you plant it, how many cuts you plan to get and what your weather is like.
