Cattle Ranches for Sale: Know the Details of Rent Vs. Own

Explore the benefits of owning ranch land over renting.

In my latest column in Central Florida Ag News, I shared all the reasons why it’s a good idea to look at cattle ranches for sale and do more than just dream. Since large tracts of ranch land are one of the biggest requirements for a cattle operation, you have to have plenty of land whether you use ranch land for lease or you buy your own. The rent vs. own debate is a common one, but it’s always a better idea to buy if you’re able. Those that choose to take the ‘rent’ path are missing out on some very important benefits of owning ranch land. See all the benefits of buying land over renting or leasing below.

Drought Happens: Water, Irrigation Options, and More

Irrigation is important in farming because drought tends to sneak up on you.

In 1950, weather expert, H.P. Gillette, described drought as a “creeping phenomenon.” When you think about it, that’s a pretty accurate statement. Drought tends to sneak up on you. “Drought is different than other natural hazards,” explains Mark Svoboda, a climatologist and director of the National Drought Mitigation Center (NDMC) at the University of Nebraska, and one of the co-founders, as well as a former author, of the weekly U.S. Drought Monitor. “Tornadoes hit hard and leave, floods or hurricanes can last days, but then they’re gone, too. But droughts…they can take months to develop and then last for months or even years…and drought has a much larger spatial and temporal footprint.” In AgAmerica Lending’s latest article, we look at drought and why irrigation is important to agriculture. Read a summary of the article below.Read More
