Wayne,
    I am anxious to follow your story! I am in the process of researching the exact same move, but from GA. My wife is from Muskegon, and we are looking to homestead in the UP. How is your progress?

Hello, all! I am looking into starting a cattle business in which I lease land, buy one year old calfs in spring, MOB graze them, and sell them in fall; a la Joel Salatin. My question is what do you do for shelter for those stormy days and blazing sun, if the pasture doesn't have standing trees (I am in the central GA region)? Would a moveable shelter be needed and/or worth the time, energy, and money? Hoping to get advice from some who are actually practicing the technique. Thank you all in advance.

Thanks, all! After looking closely, I decided the grade wasn't that and to go ahead with my fencing and get some hay down. I read that it's a process best started in the fall, so I will be building fence between now and then (handheld post hole diggers are a beast in the GA heat/hummidity, so it'll take some time).

Thank you Wayne! I definitely didn't consider that. The guy I've been watching is in coastal NJ, and I'm in west GA. We def have a fire ant issue down here. I'll look into that.

Brand new poster here! Hello to all, and thank you in advance! So I have recently been introduced to the amazing idea of doing a permaculture food forest, by way of youtube. I have an area in which I want to build mine, but it isn't the most level. It isn't badly sloped by any means, but the videos from which I'm getting my info are saying to put down a very thick wood chip layer, and I would hate to build a fence; put down loads of wood chips; have it wash down in a heavy rain; and be left having to pull out the fence and start from scratch (which is how my luck usually goes). I can post pics if that would help (I'm sure it would), when I get home. I know that it's supposed to be based on the way nature was intended, and what are the odds that nature is nicely graded? I'm EXTREMELY excited to see what I can create, and I want to get it right the first time. Thank you in advance!
