Many a small homestead operated with just a cow and a calf. In Ireland, where land was scarce, it led to the development of the little Dexter cattle, so the feed requirements were even less.

I would try to change your 2-sided run-in to a 3 sided one, to break the wind better. Maybe even put a gate acros the front so they could be penned up when the snow is drifting. When snow covers your fences the cattle can drift, too.
