I was wondering how much land does a usual cow needs. This may seem like a dumb question. Thanks for the info!
O.k! Thanks sooo much for all of your info!Latestarter X 2! In my state of South Dakota, we probably vary more than anywhere else. Here in the Eastern part of the state, there are areas where you only need 2.5 - 3 acres of grass for a cow/calf unit. In some of the drier parts of Western SD, they may need up to 25 acres per unit. It all varies due to your average precipitation and the fertility of your soils.
