The ideal size for a breeding herd is 30 to 50 cows running with one bull. This is a single sire herd. Herds of this size need to be properly fenced and grazed on good pasture; and that is only justified with quality stock. During the season, herds are broken down into smaller numbers, and built back up into larger herds, depending on the time of year. In this course, you will learn how to manage a commercial beef herd.
