Do your calculations first.

What you'll need for a cattle ranch is sufficient acreage to support the number of cattle you plan to raise.  And it would help to find out how the cattle market is currently.  Include in your calculations the cost of additional feed for winter, veterinarian services, the salary for cowhands if you plan a big operation, cost for well drilling and pumps if there is insufficient water from other sources.  And don't forget the cost of building and maintaining fencing, barns, corrals and the cost of shipping to market.

I live in an area  where some people have cattle and it is not a job to be taken lightly.  Many first-timers have the dream of having their own business but have not considered all real and potential costs before leaping into the job, only to fail miserably and find themselves very deep in debt.   

So, do all the research first, consult with knowledgable people in the field and see if it will be workable, and not just a dream that could turn into a nightmare.
