When I purchased my 50 acres, I also purchased 32 across the road on a hill. I then divided it with a cousin who is building on his side of the parcel. I was going to select cut it then clear cut some parts and fence and seed it with the timber money to put my small herd of cows over there and get them out of this side where my horses are and I live. After mounting medical bills frm my surgery and a complete dissappointment with the select cutting (I was told the timber is only good for pulp because it is rotten ) I can only clear cut and I'll need to clear cut a significant portion to get the money to seed, fence, and finish my fireplace, which I deperately need finished before next winter. I spent $1200 heating with propane this winter in my unfinished house and can't afford that waste again. Meaning I'll be clear-cutting all sixteen acres which are hilly. Anyway, to bore you further (but I need your help) since I won't have the select cutting timber money and I need to get the fireplace finished which, conservatively will be an additional $2,000, I have to clear cut all of it despite my dislike of the idea. Have I mentioned that I need to sell my small herd of cows so I can finish paying the remaining medical bills for my surgery? I am only keeping my pregnant Jersey. So after I clear cut, seed, and fence these sixteen acres, what can I do with them? I don't want to put my goats over there since we have coyotes and my LGD is only 5 months old. I could rotate my horses over there ocassionally but having only three of them and so much land on this side of the road, I would rather have them clipping the grass here. Any ideas on what to do with it? I want to seed and fence it with the proceeds soI can use it eventually and doubt I'll have the money any time soon to fence it if I don't do it now. Don't know if I'll have money to buy more bottle calves to raise, seems like calves are going up in price here. Any advice? I really need my fireplace finished and this is about the only way it will get done before winter. Oh I guess I could leave it alone for a while, which doesn't sound too bad, but in my current economic crisis, I sure would like for it to be producing something for me. Thanks in advance.
