Lucas Branham is a 32 year old aspiring rancher from Taylorsville, KY. He has worked two jobs around 55 hours per week for the last 14 years. He has grown tired of the grind and wants to spend more time with family and work from a home based operation.
He’s started a small cattle operation on leased land with 14 head currently and soon to be 30. He ran a small csa and pastured broiler operation in 2014.
Lucas joins us today to provide advice on securing funds for start up cattle operation, securing leased land, running cattle on a shoestring budget, and how to start making the transition to self employed while keeping wife/family happy and involved.
We discuss how he got started, where he sought his funding, how he found land to lease and his future plans. We discuss the funding that is available to ranchers, how you can use leased land operations to eventually secure a loan to purchase land and more.
