animal carrying capacity
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.
