When starting out try to be sure you reduce your expenses. As for shelter you may go for simple windbreakers rather than expensive barns. Once your cattle start making you money you may then build bigger shelters for them.
When it comes to water ensure that you have more than enough for them. A single cow may drink around 12 gallons of water each day. You can build water troughs for your livestock to drink clean water from.
