About the author

I graduated from West Virginia University in 2012 with a degree in livestock management, and a minor in agribusiness. While at WVU, I won a statewide entrepreneurship competition with a patentable device I designed for video-assisted cattle artificial insemination. I then spent six months interning for grazing expert Greg Judy in Missouri. Now I run Rhinestone Cattle Consulting, helping new and experienced farmers build profitable mob grazing beef operations. I offer artificial insemination, electric fence building and graphic design services too. I'll travel anywhere in the 48 states for on-farm consulting and speaking at conferences.

    I think this is excellent advice: “If you want to gain more experience before you take on a custom herd, start a very small scale operation of your own. Rent a few acres and get a couple cattle. Keep your project small enough that you could absorb the cost if it doesn’t work out right away. Scale up as you get more comfortable and as you become better qualified for financing and contracts.”
