Do you know what kind of grass you have on the property? That will help me better answer your question.

50 ac of native/costal mix. 50 ac restoring the land with native grasses and legumes.

I don't know what the stocking rates would be in Travis County, but in Collin County we recommend 1 animal unit (1000#'s of animal) for every 4 acres on improved pastures such as Coastal or every 8 acres on native pastures, so in your case it would be an animal unit for about every 6 acres on a mixture of Coastal and natives.
