The general rule of thumb is 1:1. That means one cow per one acre of pasture. Keep in mind that is a minimum requirement. A cow/calf pair will typically require closer to two acres. 26 Mei 2022

Cows can live for over 20 years but on commercial farms the age at slaughter varies considerably. Farms with poor management, high- yielding cattle or high disease rates will slaughter their animals at a much younger age, normally after four lactations (around 5-6 years old), but sometimes after 2 or 3.
