Hello I am new to the forum. I thought I would get some ideas from other users. Our family owns 2000 acres in nor cal , with good water and over 800 acres of irrigated pasture. Hay has been grown here and it does well. Also cattle have been raised there. I want to start a cow calf operation ,but I wonder what would be best as a beginner and limited funds. Should I start a cattle herd or put my money into starting a haying operation. We have some equip but all machine need much repair. We are more equipped for cattle than hay. Any opinions? With a budget of 20,000 what would you do?
