More than 300 beef cows and just over 6,000 acres is a lot for any one person to manage, let alone take care of by himself. Fortunately, Trent Selte, who lives near Paradise Valley, Alberta, has a few things that work together to his benefit. First of all, less than a third of the land he rents and owns is devoted to crops. The rest is in hay and pasture for the predominantly Angus-cross cows and calves. Crops, meanwhile, consist of about 1,300 acres of canola, 260 acres of hard spring wheat and around 400 acres of corn. Of the latter, only around 100 to 150 acres is chopped as silage for backgrounding the calves over the winter. The rest is left standing in the field for winter feed as part of a unique rotational grazing program. Last, but not least, Selte relies on the productivity and reliability of a Fendt 714 tractor and 785 loader to get more done in a day.
