I've been thinking of brining our cow home from the family farm once we get the land set up. The problem is, the pasture will only be about an acre. It will probably be planted in some type of clover (unless better ideas arise). I have more land available for hay, just not for a pasture. I know that with this small area, I will only be able to sustain my beefmaster x cow and a calf each year. I thought about trading her in for a more compact model. I see there are about 7 (?) different types of mini's out there and they all seem to be pretty costly. I realize that some will prefer one more then another, but is there any smaller framed cows out there that aren't more then a used car? I don't really think I want milkers right now...mainly interested in beef. I also want to throw a few pot-bellies and maybe a wether or two on the pasture if possible. Any guidance, clues, ideas, beliefs as to what types of and numbers I can run?
