What is beef cattle raising?
Beef cattle raising is just a play of words for a job of raising beef cattle. Raising beef cattle often involves breeding beef cows to a bull to produce calves that are sold for the meat market. However raising beef cattle also involves raising purebreds to sell to other producers; stocker/backgrounding operation which "raise" weanling calves from weaning age to adequate age and weight to start finishing; and "raising" steers or finishing cattle to slaughter.

Asked in Ranching
What was the main reason that ranchers began to rise cattle for products other than beef?
Cattle ranchers are and always have raised (not "rise") cattle for beef, they've never began to raise cattle for products other than beef for any reason. Of course you may be referring to those ranchers who raise cattle to sell their cattle to other ranchers who need those type of cattle for their operations. Seedstock or purebred cattlemen still contribute to the beef industry, though, when they cull out cows, bulls, heifers and steered young bulls because they do not fit or are inferior to the type of stock they need to raise to sell to other seedstock producers or commercial producers.
