Black Angus cattle is one of the most profitable forms of livestock
farming. In the United States, no cattle breed is more popular as a beef
breed than Black Angus. It has been favored over all other beef breeds
because of its superior taste and texture, and satisfactorily fulfilling
both of these requirements and a number of other conditions can allow
those who raise such cattle to charge higher prices.
Raising Black Angus
cattle will therefore involve more processes than usual, and a cattle
grower must exercise due diligence if he or she wishes to profit from
livestock that meets the strictest standards.
There are four major steps involved in raising Black Angus cattle:
1. First determine where and how your livestock will be housed for the
long-term. Only two housing options are available for raising Black
Angus cattle: roofed structures such as barns and sheds and open fields
with the only cover being large enough trees. The type of housing to be
used will depend mainly on the climate in your chosen area. You can do
away with any form of shelter for your cattle if you live in the
Southwest or other parts of the country where the climate is generally
warm though it may be advisable to have a small roofed structure put up
on your property to better protect sick animals from the elements.
2. Determine how you will feed and care for your livestock. Organic
feeding and caring is more expensive and requires a larger space on your
property than what traditional methods call for, but the absence of
potentially harmful chemicals in the mix means your animals become
considerably healthier than what is otherwise possible. Raising Black
Angus cattle or any other form of livestock using organic methods
translates into high-grade beef with the same desired taste and texture
but without any unsafe additives. Also make sure that your cattle are
constantly fed so they will always be in good condition. They should
always have access to the food they need whether it’s a field for
grazing or stocks of hay that are ideal during winter.
3. Even if it’s your first time to venture into Black Angus cattle, you
should strive to get the best animals. Budget constraints will no doubt
prevent you from buying an adequate number of the healthiest cattle
available. Still, you can ultimately get more value out of your initial
investment if you start your farm with even just a few cows. Artificial
insemination has made breeding easier, and it is more affordable
compared to keeping a full-sized bull for a whole year but having him
mingle with your cows less than half the time.
4. Monitor your herd closely even if it’s composed of only a few cattle.
This will allow you to adjust the amount of food and care whenever
necessary to ensure your herd will neither starve nor eat excessively.
This will also enable you to identify symptoms of illness among your
herd at the earliest and have them treated.
Raising Black Angus cattle offers a bit of a challenge compared to
raising other breeds of cattle, but the extra effort and investment can
be overshadowed by the potential returns.
