Pasture Cow-Culations | Activity Sheet
Beef cattle eat grass for most of their life. Grass gives them a balanced diet! Cattle eat grass on land that often could not be used to grow other crops. In fact, 2/3 of the grazing land in the U.S. could not grow other crops! Cattle use this land to turn grass into food for people! Cattle graze on large areas of land. Fences surround some land. This land is called a pasture. Pastures are measured in acres. One acre is about the size of a football field. Rancher Kara wants to combine some of her pastures. Look at each group of pastures. Add up the acres in the pastures to find out the number of total acres.
