How many cattle will 100 acres support?

    Someone thinking of starting a grazing operation may ask how many acres of pasture are needed for each cow. If depending almost exclusively on pasture for their forage source, an approximation is one-half acre per cow. Using this ratio, for 600 milk cows at least 300 acres is needed. In summer, less is needed, so excess forage can be baled or ensiled. In late fall through spring more may be needed. Ranges vary to sometimes needing as much as a full acre for a cow.
