Farming status, plans, and practices

Established cow calf herd, looking for new farm to rotationally graze. I manage my herd and my pastures meticulously, they are a huge source of pride for me. I maximize pasture feeding so minimal hay needs are planned to be purchased for feeding outside of the grazing season. I focus on grass genetics for the herd and have built a great customer base for young stock. I'm looking to establish myself in Central NY or the southern tier.
