I lot will have to do with how much of the land you purchase is actually usable land. You will have much more usable space with something square/rectangle and flat versus hills, gullies and shaped weird.
If your looking to have your own place to track and enough to host trials I would look to at least 40-50 acres.
2 acres for a regulation field.
1 acre for out buildings
2 acres parking and access.
Remainder as tracking. To give yourself some room and to make a regulation sized IPO3 track you're looking at about 4 acres a track. 12 IPO3 dogs will take up over 35 acres if they're done correctly and you don't want to worry about cramming everything into a postage stamp sized field.
