We are looking to redo our yards and wanting to know how many Sq. feet per head we need? The yards will be open lot, full cement, and fence line feeding. We plan to feed 500 pound cattle to finish. Fresh water in each yard will be available.
One variable you aren't mentioning, its somewhat location dependent as in higher rainfall areas you would use x ft2 if its drier you can get away with less. Your snow volumes also can impact the need for space.
Not trying to get your location out of you but as it does make a difference to the advice (at least imo) - - - - over to you.
