How much does it cost to raise a cow?
i might get one
I have cows and it costs around $1,990 per year
A few bales of hay. beef are selling around $1.60 per pound.
That is a few bales of hay a day
A lot. My family was going to get one but you'd be losing money with how much it'll cost to feed it.
We give are cows either 1 square bale a day or 1 round bale for 3-4 days round bales are 45 dollars and up a piece and square bales are 6-7 dollars a piece.
It's cheap in the spring; just let it out in the pasture. In the fall/winter buy round/square hay bales (round; $45-$100 each; square; $4-$20 each)
depends on how you raise it my cows free graze it costs very little just vaccinations in spring and fall that's my main costs but I have access to thousands of acres
About $3,000 for the fence, hay, and the actual cattle
