The place we're moving to has three pastures (2 acres, 4 acres and 8 acres ... the big one has some wetland and lots of scrub) that haven't been grazed in about four years. It was suggested to us to get a couple of cattle and let them in ahead of the horses, like an earlier poster suggested. At the end of the season - if they are fat enough - we'll sell one and slaughter the other. We've already got friends lined up to buy half of the slaughtered one 'cause our freezer isn't big enough! But it seems to be a good idea ...
