Personal experience and production goals summary:

I am seeking a lease/partner farm to capitalize a regenerative beef cattle (cow-calf) operation. I will deliver and finance the cattle; just need land.  Flexible on terms.  It's a high-density, rotational grazing program to be operated on leased land with established infrastructure. The project requires minimal capex & inputs. 

My background is in fund management & agribusiness investing, not formal farming.  As fund manager, I made direct agribusiness investments around the world on a simple thesis:  The world is urbanizing on a massive scale and the rise in food demand should generate high returns from agribusiness capital formation.  But it didn’t take long for this thesis to be proved wrong.  My funds’ Ag investments performed poorly, and for reasons that didn’t make sense to me. 

Good investments begin with simple questions.  How can food demand rise around the world while food supply/commercial farming struggle in perpetuity?  I believe the answer begins with soil.  Better soils reduce or eliminate every expense line item on a cash flow statement:  soil prep, feed cost, chemical fertilizers, seeding, tractor usage, fuel expense, irrigation, supplements, vets & meds, etc.  When soils become more nutrient-dense and carbon-intensive, animals of the right genotype gain weight quickly and naturally from pasture.  The result is better quality beef at lower cost. This is the simple goal.
