Buy the cows and the fence, then buy the hay or have it custom baled. Either way would cost less than what you would have in it figuring interest or opportunity cost on that much equipment. Buy yourself 1 decent loader tractor for feeding hay and scooping manure. A lot of good options out there that will be cheaper than either you mentioned. Worry about farming tillable ground when you have tillable ground to farm, then buy yourself some hay equipment to help justify the tractor. Unless you are independently wealthy and just want a fun way to spend a lot of money. If that's the case, I'm not judging one bit, but I have to say I could have way more fun blowing money on something other than on cattle.
