Land Seeker Description
I want to raise cattle, pigs, and chickens on pasture. I’m a very good MIG welder, I’ve been studying Joel Salatin and others for 10 years, I have grown many different veggies and fruits here in 117 degree weather with great success, I’m extremely good with animals, and I believe in a contract between me and my animal, and I will do my best to make sure the animal only has one bad day ever, I’ve been a successful business owner, I’ve used heavy equipment, and I’m a great mechanic, including building several race cars.
My wife and I will be moving to Oregon within the next 2 years to ranch and enjoy the cooler weather.
My plan is to buy 5 – 10 calves, 1 Tamworth boar, 10 Large Black Gilts, and some chickens.
The pasture I have in mind will be in the shape of an oval encircling a pond for an easy water source.
The pasture will have 36 paddocks with some permanent and some temporary electric fencing.
I grew several different types of grasses and brassicas here and I really like Appin Turnips, Ryegrass, and Sorghum-Sudangrass.
I’m a man who believes the most important thing is integrity.
I hope we can talk soon.
What features of the property are essential?
Water rights, pond, stream, water. The rest I can build myself.
Describe your farming experience
I don’t have any, other than testing ways to grow things here in the desert.
Are you currently farming?
What are your short term goals for the land
To build the pasture, water infrastructure, and fencing. Then add the animals, then work on finding markets for the meat and leather. I’m hoping to find a good cooperative or organics wholesaler to limit my time selling.
What are your long term goals
To have a working ranch we can be proud of that works as smoothly as possible.
Describe your housing needs
If no housing is available, I’ll bring my RV.
