Why is high calving percentages important to beef producers?
Because a high calving percentage is the incremental increase of cattle available therefore beef is at a higher availability.
They don't want the competition that the other foreign beef producers pose with their imports. They want the opportunity to supply beef to the people of the USA themselves, not rely on imports instead.
Certified Angus Beef or CAB is an American marketing initiative created by the American Angus Association to get more people to eat Angus beef. And it has worked, but a little too well. Consumers have demanded more Angus beef, and producers have responded. ALL producers, be they Angus producers or not. Check out the related question below for more info.
Argentina is one of the world's foremost producers of beef.
You can purchase beef cattle from a number of locations including Sale barns, and from private producers.
Heidi Renata Buehner has written: 'Winter supplementation and delayed weaning of an autumn calving beef herd under western Oregon conditions' -- subject(s): Beef cattle
A monthly news letter that deals with the issues of raising cows in the U.S. Northeast. Calving ease is also the selection of bulls and females (cows and heifers) based on EPDs (Expected Progeny Differences). Calving ease EPDs are divided into two categories: Direct calving ease and Maternal calving ease. DCE is an estimate of calving ease of calves sired by or out of this individual; basically, it is determined by the size, shape, etc… Read More
Calving is year-round in the dairy industry, unlike in the beef industry. So the only significance is that you can time several group of cows to calve at different times of the year so that you have a constant supply of milk going to the factories.
There's really no name for such a thing. All it is is that she's just ready to give milk to her newborn calf.
You do not! In a beef herd the mother (dam) is kept for many years to breed the 'beef' offspring that spend 7 to 9 months sucking mothers milk and grazing. This is a suckler herd. A beef breeder. Answer 2: Like the above poster said, you do NOT keep beef cows from producing milk after calving. However, the only reason you should let beef cows (or a beef cow) dry up is if her… Read More
In all provinces. Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario are the top beef producers of Canada, with Alberta on top.
Heifers should be bred when they reach 15 months of age. Cows should be rebred 45 to 60 days after calving.
A calf (or baby cow) is the reason that the beef and dairy industries have not crashed. They are the future beef and milk producers, so in short answer they will feed you.
Producers are essential to all ecosystems because most our our meals are linked to producers. For ex. Beef (Cows) eat corn if they are unlucky, and if they're lucky they get to eat grass. Both corn, and grass are producers. If no producers were not available, animals, and humans would wipe out.
There are five regions are top producers of beef cattle in Philippines. These regions are all of the grassy ones.
There are actually two countries that are growing in being beef producers: Australia and Brazil. Brazil is by far the largest producer of beef, followed by Australia and New Zealand.
Simmentals, though great milk producers and beef producers, are notorious for high birth weights (low calving ease) and calves that often are too weak to get up or don't know how to suckle. Generally heifers, in their first time as a mother, are not the greatest for mothering ability. Simmentals also aren't the best breed for raising in a ranching environment as they take a lot more pampering and babying than other breeds do. For… Read More

When breeding virgin heifers, it is important to choose bulls that are known to have easy calving. When breeding cows, research what the cow lacks in genetics, is she a high milk producer or have high weaning weights (beef cattle), does she lack conformation. Once you have determined what the dam (mother) lacks, breed her to bulls that will make up for what doesn't have. You want an offspring that will be a better producer… Read More
If the question's in direct reference to the southwestern United States, the answer to that is yes. Most producers in the southwestern USA raise beef cattle.
Anything from beef producers, backgrounders, stockmen, to feedlot owners.
As far as the beef industry is concerned, quite a substantial one, especially since it was able to get more consumers back to eating beef and not the other competitive meats like chicken and pork. It also meant more producers raising and registering Angus cattle, and enabling producers to get a premium for selling their Angus, or Angus-cross cattle.
A beef cow should be structurally sound, with good depth of rib and deep in the hindquarters. They must display femininity, but not too much so that they look more dairy than beef. They must have genetics for docility, feed convertibility (or, able to live more off of grass and hay only than needing to be supplemented with grain most of their lives), mothering ability, calving ease, good fertility, and be an all-around easy-keeping cow… Read More
Argentina and Brazil are known for their excellent beef producing cattle. The world demands prime beef, hence the producers are happy to comply.
The beef industry provides people with food.
H. C. Tankersley has written: 'Rural preparedness for beef producers'
Jersey semen. Never give semen from a Holstein bull to a Jersey cow because you'll just be asking for trouble: difficult calving, and possibly a dead or injured cow as a result of trying to pass a really large calf. If you want a dairy-beef cross, semen from an Angus bull with calving ease would also be alright.
A cattle producer, cattleperson (or specifically cattleman or cattlewoman), or dairy farmer if the cattle farmer has dairy cows. People who raise beef cattle are often called beef producers.
A beef producer makes between six pence and six trillion pounds each year. This is because some beef producers aren't very good at their trade and others rip you off. Big time!
The U.S. and Argentina are both major beef producers. Australia also produces a lot of meat products. Germany is famous for sausage, while Great Britain has a reputation as a beef-eating country.
The best beef cows are cows that are literally low-maintenance and wean off a good-sized calf that's around 60 to 65% of their weight. These cows should be conformationaly and structurally correct, able to thrive off of grass and hay alone with little to no supplementation, easy calving, good mothers, relatively good milking (they don't have to be like dairy cows, but give milk enough for a good-sized calf at weaning), and able to come… Read More
The range is usually when the calf is 6 to 10 months old. Most calves in North America are separated/weaned from their dams when they're around 6 months of age.
The Certified Angus Beef (CAB) program is where cattle producers can get a premium for raising and selling Angus cattle, or cattle that are black with some Angus breeding in them, for beef. It's also a marketing initiative to get more consumers to buy more beef that is labelled as "certified Angus" due to the implied higher quality and consistency this type of beef would have over non-CAB-labelled beef. Unfortunately, it's all marketing, and not… Read More
Majority of cows don't and shouldn't need help with calving, especially beef cows. It gets questionable with dairy cows, especially Holsteins--not so much with Jerseys or other non-Holstein dairy breeds.
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.
It produced many products, such as beef.
Yes. For beef cows that are suckling their calves for as long as 6 to 10 months, the breeding period starts 45 to 60 days after the calving season has ended, in which the cow will get rebred, but her calf will still be nursing from her.
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… Read More
It depends on how you define lean. There are different percentages. Such as: 95% lean 5% fat 90% lean 10% fat 85% lean 15% fat 80% lean 20% fat.
People eat beef because it is important to our diet. Also you can't live without meat. It is not good to. Sorry to the vegetarians.
Well, first of all, the correct name is, "Corned" beef. "Corning" is an old name for the process of soaking beef in a very salty water solution for several weeks - this process keeps beef from spoiling, and was very important before people had refrigeration.
Not really. Most of all beef or any kind of livestock products are from the midwest, mainly Nebraska.
The most important one is fertility. Second most important is mothering ability; third, milking ability.
without them we wouldn't have any kind of beef, no milk, or leather.
It contains protein, which helps build up muscles
I can think of two. Since the U.S. and Australia are arguably the top two producers of beef. Angus and Hereford may be the two most commonly slaughtered cattle.
To improve genetics in the herd, from things like better milking ability and quantity (for dairy herds) to other things like better carcass characteristics in calves, better mothering ability, calving ease, docility, etc. in beef cattle/cows.
They're nothing more than another breed of cattle that is used for beef production. In Switzerland they were (and still are) used for both beef and dairy production.
Both are, though the dairy industry seems to be more popular than the beef industry, but probably only by a margin.
The American Angus Association has done a great job creating a product promoting their breed and making it as consistent as they could in competition with the hog and poultry industry. Such marketing skills has landed an increase in demand from consumers for Angus beef, and an overwhelming response by producers to be more than happy to oblige. The presence of a premium offered by the sale of Angus cattle has also encouraged this growth… Read More
