Description of Land in Texas
There are rivers nearby so that you can water/tend your crops and/or hydrate your cattle. Also, for your cattle's need of food, Texas is fortunately very grassy and will care for your cattle without having to plant grass.
By contrast, land in Texas can be bought for 12.5 cents per acre and paid out over several years.
