The University of Kentucky Beef IRM team often gets questions on how to begin an Ag enterprise on a piece of property that someone has either inherited or recently purchased.
They recently started a YouTube series entitled “I Bought a Farm....Now What?”.
New videos will be posted weekly, exploring the many decisions needed to transform a property into a viable beef enterprise. The next few episodes discuss methods to obtain reliable information, tips on land maintenance, and an economic analysis of different Ag enterprises suitable for a hill farm. These episodes are not lectures but rather podcast-like conversations.
Episode 2 - "Where Should I Get My Information?"
This episode, featuring Dr. Les Anderson and Adam Probst, discusses the Extension service and how to obtain reliable information for your farm and family.
Episode 3 - "Land Maintenance"
Dr. Les Anderson discusses land maintenance concerns with ANR Agent Adam Probst. Among many topics, Adam demonstrates how to take a soil sample and analyze the results. This episode's focus is to help land owners develop a plan to maintain or improve their property.
