Beef cattle produce manure which feeds the soil and maintains soil structure. This increases the production of the arable crops on the farm. Beef cattle can make use of marginal land. Although the greatest demand is for the high energy plant foods such as cereals and oil seeds, the amount of useable land in the world is limited. In this course, you'll learn about the nature and scope of beef cattle production. Includes useful material on a variety of breeds and how to select the most appropriate breeds for your set up.
