Please elaborate on the type(s) of agricultural operation you plan on running.I would use a Cow Calf operation to improve soil health and water absorption by using grazing practices such as high density rapid rotation grazing to get an even graze on the land and allow the proper rest period for best regrowth and eliminate overgrazing of initial regrowth.
Elaborate on the farming practices you plan on using.Along with the High Density, rapid rotation during the grazing season. I would like to use swath grazing and Bale grazing as Fall/Winter feeding to minimize on feeding/equipment cost and still be improving the soil with by strategically returning plant matter back to the soil.
