I am currently planning to move back to my hometown and farm with my family. However, I will not take on an increase in land for about 3 more years (father retires) I currently only farm about 100 acres or so and last winter I background about 120 heifers of my own. I am going to have a full time job but also want to invest some money into something else that I can make a dollar on.
If you were me, what would you do, I have for example say 20 grand to work with. Last fall I was going to buy some bred heifers and calve them out, I wish I would have, I would have made a killing. Thinking about doing that this year. Anyone else have an idea as what would be something that doesnt present a ton of risk? Feeding cattle isnt really an option because our lots will already be full and I dont have a ton of corn and would rather not have to buy it.
