Running a profitable pig enterprise on just 1 acre, is it possible, and if so, what is possible?

What’s that operation going to look like, what are the trade-offs and the costs, and how much could you make?

It's an operation which could bring some nice cash flow into a homestead or diversify a farms revenue streams, and the time inputs and profits will surprise you.

Because a lot is possible on just one acre.

Full Access - Greg Judy: The Economics For Leasing Land, How To Find It and Develop It For Maximum Income

June 3, 2019

This is a Full Access, Full-Length episode.

In this episode of Ask Darby we answer the questions on cattle.

 

This presentation will cover the steps involved in finding land to lease, securing a lease, economics of leasing land and low input methods for developing the land.

The more undeveloped the land is the better candidate it is for getting an economical long term lease. With a blank piece of idle land with no infrastructure in place, you have more to offer the landowner. What has not worked well with leasing land will be explained to give you some red flags to watch out for. We will go over what works and does not work with meeting prospective landowners. To be successful in securing long term land leases it requires building good relationships with the landowner. The landowner needs to be involved or kept up to date with what you are doing on their land.

Once you get a lease, how do you develop it economically? Fencing, water, handling and loading facilities will be covered. Timber stand improvement methods will be discussed.

Adding other enterprises besides cattle? Multi-species will be covered. Timber management, mushroom enterprises, hunting, recreational activities. Custom grazing livestock for other people brings in immediate income with no risk. Do’s and don’ts of custom grazing are discussed. Advantages of leasing versus owning land. Leasing land is a great way to build a high-profit operation from the ground up with very little equity required. Using leased land is a huge unfair advantage simply from the standpoint that you do not make any land payments or are expected to pay land taxes on the property every year. The lease payment is 100% tax deductible, land payments are not. There is no interest payments to the bank, you make the lease payment; remaining income is yours to keep. How to market what you raise off the leased land. Developing your own market without being dependent on a commodity market. How to become a price setter, not a price taker. Building multiple income streams from your leased land. If you don’t fail at one thing a year, you are not thinking outside the box enough.

500 baby chicks have arrived at Darby's farm thus beginning the cycle of raising broilers for the season.  With the chicks on farm, we will talk about what the next steps are.

We also discuss the importance of choosing the right hatcheries and breed.  Not just to make sure that you receive quality birds, but also to make sure that you receive quality birds in the shortest shipping time possible. 

Darby will talk about introducing the birds to pasture and how started with the Salatin style chicken tractor and then evolved away from that.   And we talk about how Darby plans his successions of broilers.

There is a lot of good advice in this one for those just starting out and those with experience.
