animal carrying capacity
What is the animal carrying capacity for pasture in Jones County, South Dakota?
Minnehaha County South Dakota
It's difficult to say without additional information. It varies depending on where you are at in the county. What are your plans cow/calf pairs? Thanks

Cash rent values for Tripp County are anywhere from $55/pair to $75/pair for a six-month grazing season. I am guessing that Jones county would be fairly similar.
Carrying capacity will vary somewhat across the county, I'm guessing anywhere 0.85 AUM's/acre to 1.10 AUM's/acre. There are so many variables that can determine a carrying capacity.
