Hello names Chris. Married 23 yr old,lives in Northern Kentucky. I currently work as a production line welder. I don't have any really experience in raising cattle or anything farming. Besides having some horse growing up and a cow or pig we would just slaughter to feed family.

Over the last few weeks I have been talking to some old timers that used to be in the cattle bussiness. well the more and more I learn about it the more I wanna get into it.

So right now this is just serious talk between me and my wife. Basically here to see if this is something I want todo or if we can even do it. We got no land or anything yet. We're young and don't wanna just jump into it with no plan.

My goal in doing this isn't to quit my day job, but to bring in some extra money every year and do it when I'm retired for extra income.


So I'm here to learn and get advice. All the way from start up to managing herd and and financial advice.

It'll be great to talk and learn from all of you.

The best advice I can give you is to get some experience helping someone else (that knows what they're doing) with their cattle before getting some of your own, and get in slow (with your own money, not the bank's).
