You think of it in animal units instead of head. An AU is 1000 pounds so if you have a 1,500 pound cow you have 1.5 AU. Large cows are inefficient so around 900-1,100 lb cow is the sweet spot for grazing and production. Virginia has poor soil as most of it has been washed away due to tillage as Virginia was the breadbasket of the soil before western expansion. now look up what Joel Salatin has done at polyface farms with his carrying capacity and improved his soil depth and quality. It’s not that hard to increase stocking capacity and production with proper management and improving soil health. It’s easy to turn the table as say that the fake meat isn’t really solving anything either since we have a top soil crisis and its estimated that our top soil has less than 60 growing seasons. I disagree with that because with proper management like no till and cover crop use with animals rotating on the lands between crops. We’ll actually build soil and increase the productive capacity of our lands.
