wat u reckon it costs u to keep a cowOn 10 acres of grass here we had 10 cows. Sold calves at 10 months old weaned off when they came in in November. Price about £650 each on average. You’d be lucky to gross £650 an acre growing wheat here and would have maybe £300 per acre costs to grow the wheat. I didn’t think the cows did too badly financially and would have been better if we hadn’t screwed up the management of body condition. We were straw off the rest of the farm which we hardly noticed and they ate rough hay that the horse folks wouldn’t buy. I reckon they can fit in, but a couple of big vets bills can see the profit disappear. Arable isn’t all sunshine and profit. It’s big spend, high risk and slim margins.
