Personal experience and production goals summary:
We have raised anywhere from 5 to 15 head of cattle at a time. We produce between 150 -200 round bales of hay/ year. We have a large family garden. Employed as full time firefighter. We have been operating my grandparents small (18ac) farm for a couple years. We are mainly just a self sufficient operation with no real agriculture income right now. "We want to raise our kids on the farm the way we were. We have been operating the family farm for the last couple years. I have always worked this land and some small hay fields around the community with my grandpa. With his recent passing the future of continuing what we have been doing is uncertain.
I am also interested in growing corn but have never tried it.
