I am not a horse person. I just built a horse facility for my daughter. At this point we have a quarter horse and a quarter horse/gaited horse mix. We have eight acres of pasture in three paddocks. I have TOTALLY optimized a pure grass pasture to all the agricultural extension service rccomendations. We took off 72 4X4 round bales last year.
There is way more pasture than what two horses could keep down. My idea is to put a beef cow or two in pasture to keep the grass down, and then use the beef for personal consumption (along with extended family). I am amazed at the things I hear about "grass fed beef".
Any suggestions as to breed of cattle or any other concerns or experiences anyone would like to share?
