Feeding Cattle for Beef
Source of Digital Item
This industry favors diversification in agriculture and makes possible a well-balanced distribution of labor throughout the year.
Approximately 75 per cent of the fertilizing constituents of feeds fed to livestock is returned in the manure; consequently when the manure is saved and applied to the land, feeding operations largely maintain soil fertility.
Ability in buying and selling cattle and in combining feeds properly has a direct bearing on the success of beef-cattle feeding.
Quality in feeder cattle favors economical production; uniformity and quality combined invariably mean increased selling prices.
