Starting a wagyu farm

Hi everyone,
I’ve been a member on here for a while but I’m pretty sure this is my first post.

This is a bit of a long post but to answer my main question you will need a brief overview of where I’m at and what my intentions are.

New farm owner licenses

So me and my partner are looking at purchasing a 100acre farm. I have a dairy farming background and my partner has a background working with sheep. Once we buy the farm we would like to do free range choocks/eggs and sheep to start with.. I was wondering if anyone can tell me what licences or permits we would require aswell as other licences like chemicals license/cert for weed spraying etc that we also would need as beginners. we have found the perfect place and now we are looking at what else we need to know and what need.

Best animals for low maintenance earning on 500 acres - QLD

Hi Guys,

I been a member here for over 12 months loving the content and community. I am in the process of purchasing a 500 acre farm in QLD. The soil is good, I have a 5 year plan to move onto the property full time with family so in the meantime I will doing improvements and construction.

I am wondering in the first 2 years what a good low maintenance animal to grow / graze on. Assuming the water supply and fencing will be adequate. Given that I am not living on the property yet I am looking to be up there a weekend a month.

How to Become Classified as A Primary Producer/Alpacas

Hi Everyone! First time poster, here. We've recently purchased 136acres of land near Maleny, Queensland. The land is heavily sloped and has access to a permanent creek. Previously (>10yrs) ago there were 100 head of cattle on the property. We are faced with a significant task of pasture regeneration, as the owner who was here for the last 8 years did not access any part of the property but the front yard. We've recently gone to an accountant to obtain ABN and GST number and have the intention of breeding Alpacas and establishing some Bed and Breakfast type cabins on the property.

How can I make money from my hobby farm?

Hi, I have a 20 acre hobby farm that has earned us nothing over the last 15 years we've lived here. The soil isn't great with high clay content and I have very limited water (tank water only). External fences are ok for sheep but not cattle and my internal fences are mostly falling down. I've considered many things but limited water seems to remove a lot of options and all I've done is keep a few sheep to stop the grass from over growing. Is there something I can do to earn some money from this place? Thanks so much

Turn qld acerage into commercial farm

Hi guys, I've got a 15 acre block of land I am looking at slowly getting into free range eggs. I don't want to go crazy but will aim for around 1000 hens at the peak. I am wondering what zoning and council applications I need to do to actually setup as a commercial farm? I am trying to search online with little help. Any advice is much appreciated. Regards Alex
