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 9 - "Setting Up the Rotational Grazing System"
Dr. Lehmkuhler and Dr. Les work on the farm setting up the polywire for the rotational grazing system.
Episode 10 - "Heifers Arrive to the Farm"
We found the perfect set of heifers and purchased them. In this video, they arrive and we discuss receiving cattle, receiving rations, and heifers in general.
