Commercial cattle production means that farmers produce cattle and beef in such a way that they make maximum profits of which a part is their re-invested into the farming business.

 

It takes place in title-deed and non-title deed areas and consists mainly of three major components. Highly productive rangelands able to provide sufficient high quality fodder throughout the year forms the basis of commercial cattle production.

 

The second component focuses on the effective conversion of the rangeland into a high quality and sought after product (beef).

 

The third and final component refers to the marketing of this product at the best time and through the best channel to make maximum profit.

 

This course covers in sufficient details each of these components and will provide the course participant with adequate knowledge and understanding to become profitable commercially-oriented cattle farmers.
