In some places 900A is not that big... Where I grew up you could just barely make it on a half section (320A but in that area a quarter is the smallest anyone talks about and 6 sec in a family farm is common) but where I am now, 5A can grow enough to live on and maybe even pay the land tax. Farm sizes are often 40 to 80 A.
A lot of the time, the really monster farms are poor soil. You might have one head of cattle per ten acres, here on volcanic soil in the tropics, 1.5 acres per head is about right. But yeah, 900 acres in Texas is a hobby farm. Here, the average is about 40 acres.
