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 4 - "Enterprise Analysis"
Dr. Kenny Burdine and Dr. Les Anderson discuss economic outcomes from beef enterprises for a 37 acre hill farm. Dr. Burdine also discusses several brief enterprises and does an in-depth analysis of the enterprise of choice.
Episode 5 - "Forage System Development"
Dr. Jeff Lehmkuhler discusses many factors used to design a rotational grazing system for the farm. Dr. Lehmkuhler uses a web soil survey to help assess the fertility of the soil and maps out the forage plan for the heifer development system.
