Looking for the following:

Type of opportunity:

Lease (1 to 5 Years), Lease (5+ Years), Lease with Option to Buy, Business Partnership. More info: Seeking pasture land to expand my existing cattle operation. Willing to build fence, install water systems etc. I have 15 years experience working with cattle, a degree in ag. business, and a strong desire to make a living through my grazing operation. Looking for any opportunities available.

Equipment & infrastructure:

Fencing, Well / Pond / Other water source, Livestock facilities. More info: While these facilities would be ideal, they are by no means necessary for me to be interested in considering a lease. I am willing to install fences and water infrastructure on your land.

Current production on farm:

Cattle (Dairy/Beef), Hay or pasture. More info: I graze cattle, both mother cows and weaned feeder animals. I do not make my own hay, but would fence in hay fields to turn into pasture if a landowner was open to that idea.

Current farming practices:

Biodynamic, Conventional. More info: I try to use livestock to improve soil health as much as possible, while limiting use of fertilizers and herbicides.

Qualifications and goals:

Previous farming experience:

Manager

Number of years experience:

15

Other qualifications:

Farm business training, Higher education in agriculture or related field. More info: Bachelors degree in Agricultural Business Management from NC State. 15 years firsthand experience in beef cattle and pasture management.

Production goals:

Cattle (Dairy/Beef). More info: I am interested in growing quality pasture forages, and using beef cattle to harvest these forages. In my current operation, I am focused on growing quality pasture and using excellent grazing management in order to achieve profitability from the land I operate on. I am looking for anywhere from 20 to 500 acres to lease for cattle grazing, in order to expand my herd and increase my net farm income. I would like the opportunity to improve your land through the use of good grazing management.

Personal experience and production goals summary:

I have many years of personal experience tending to my own beef cattle and managing pastures. I have been working around cattle regualry since I was 10 years old, and I have owned my own herd of cattle since age 15. I hold a B.S. in Agricultural Business Management from NC State. In the last three to four years, I have intensively studied forages and grazing management, and have successfully implemented my research findings in my own operation. I am firmly committed to using livestock grazing to rejuvenate soils and create healthy ecosystems. I am seeking pasture or open, idle land available for lease in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. I have existing farm operations in Cabarrus and Davidson counties, so these counties and those surrounding them would be my first preference, however I am open to any opportunities available.
