Re-reading this comment I am hoping no one took this as condescending or meaning people other than cattle people don't know how to properly graze. Grazing practices have been hammered in my head.
The other day I had a friend I've worked with for years ask if he could bring his horses over to put in my pens while he builds his new ones as he doesn't want to turn them out on his small crested wheat seeding yet as it us still too early and can damage it.
Before we moved into our current home we rented a place down the road with a crested wheat seeding. It hadn't been grazed for years and had a lot tall, rank feed. I grazed it down to the crown, the landlord was horrified thinking I was killing it but I pulled them off and it came back beautifully. Since we have moved out and he rented to non-horse owners he has let me graze it for free knowing I won't destroy it.
So when reading this thread I was thinking someone who is a responsible grazer might be a good fit for renting?

Seeing the OP lives in central Texas I assumed maybe that was where she was talking about for the new potential property. Living down there it seemed a lot of people had cattle as a novelty. I have no experience with the Seattle, WA area as that is a completely different part of the state I was in. I was in the south-central dry wheatland country.

Yes I'm in Central Texas now but I'm hoping to move back to the Seattle area.

@COWCHICK77 do you want to rent some land in the Seattle area? Great location, walking distance to a nice town, beautiful area....?

Lol!!! Thanks, but that side of the world is too wet and populated for me!
If we were to leave NV it would most likely be back to TX :)

We nearly had our pasture destroyed by neighbors who ran cattle on it, let it get completely overgrazed down to dust, then complained to us that the grass wasn't keeping weight on their steers... some of the worst managed pastures I've seen are cattle.


Used to be, you saw lovely pastures with dairy cows on them, so those were a safer bet. Now those pastures are gone and the dairy cattle are all in huge buildings year-round
