Skip tractors and get a decent skidloader on tracks for feeding and loader work. Pick up an old tractor for mowing and raking. A 3020 or 706 would work great and easy to work on and cheaper. Keep those cattle on pasture as much as possible. Starting an engine for them is spending money, they got 4 legs to go get their own food and spread their own manure. Watch some videos on intensive grazing, rotational grazing. Should only have to feed hay in worst of conditions.
