I have acreage, not all of it is fenced but that could be remedied in time.... I was wondering if anyone here has their own cows that they take to get butchered?

How much acreage does a cow need? is this more cost effective to "grow" your own cow than to cowpool for grass fed? Could I possibly live next to my future steak and go thru with the butchering?? How much freezer room does a whole cow need once butchered? where do you take your animal when it is "Time"?

Just pondering
