Rotationally Grazed Central Missouri Dairy

A central Missouri dairy seeks a beginning farmer to purchase their 79 acre rotational-grazed dairy operation. The farm features electric cross fencing and auto-watering to 12 paddocks and a partial line of machinery that could be used by a successor. The current landowner will serve as a mentor to a beginning farmer for the initial months of ownership and help ease the transition onto the new farm. Purchase of cattle to accompany the farm is negotiable.
