Developing a custom grazing operation on leased land

parafarmer's picture

The business I am planning is a custom grazing operation on leased land. My customers will be local dairy and beef producers. I will charge a monthly fee per head to graze replacement heifers, dry cows, and stockers year round. Land lease amounts will be established by Animal Units per acre. Sound sustainable holistic management practices will be used in all aspects of the business. The business will employ myself and two employees, who will provide the daily labor required to move cattle and track animal perfornance.

This is an early stage concept of developing an urban dairy heifer or jersey / beef cross nursery to post weaning unit in a vacant industrial facility. These animals would be targeted to populate expansion farms in NEO / W. PA. Urban jobs are a priority and many specialty crop and aquaculture projects are linking to workforce development and programs for troubled youth / adults. Why not livestock too?
