Farming Beef Cattle
Farming Beef Cattle -
Basic Requirements and Resources Needed
So, you're interested in
cattle? It is not as complicated as you think it is provided you have
the right resources at hand. Neither is it as simple as you would like
it to be. Many of today's beef cattle farmers have been at it for years.
In fact, the practice of cattle farming has been known to be passed on
from generation to generation. Rearing animals as part of farming
activities could be traced back to when our ancestors were transitioning
from hunter-gatherer lifestyles to farming.
Domestication of animals such as cattle, dogs, swine, goat, and sheep
started tens of thousands of years ago. Today, farming cattle or cows is
one of the most common types of animal domestication.
Raising cattle as
livestock is done to harvest meat or beef, milk, and other dairy
products. These animals are also raised to be used as draft animals.
Some 1.3 billion cattle are being farmed all over the world today.
Farming beef cattle involves a lot of resources. The most basic
requirements to this kind of animal farming include land and of course a
cattle breed. About an acre or two of land would be good enough for your
cattle to have for good pasture. Make sure that you have a fencing that
is strong enough to hold your cattle in. It would also be a good idea to
have a few trees on your pasture for some amount of shade. Now, choosing
your cattle breed is more challenging. There are quite a number of
considerations that you have to think of when choosing your breed. The
quality of beef that comes from a particular breed and its marketability
should be on top of your list if you are to go into farming beef cattle
Learning how to
raise cattle for beef can be enjoyable. It could also be a worthwhile
endeavor to pass on to your children. But, you have to make sure that
you are aware of all the work that gets into starting your own beef
cattle farm before you get started. Not everyone is cut out to be a beef
cattle farmer. Make sure that you are fully informed not only of the
benefits that come from
cattle farming but also of the possible
challenges that could come your way.
