VSC110 - Animal Production
Assignment 1: Beef Production
Date Submitted: 2nd April 2011
The beef industry in Australia is continually growing and is held as the second largest of Australia's agricultural industries. Due to the continual decrease in commodity prices and increase in input prices, the beef industry in Australia is under constant pressure to increase productions efficiency in order to maintain practical levels of business profitability. Beef producers need to have a wide understanding of many factors if they wish to build and maintain a successful business For this to happen, when creating a beef production enterprise, one needs to take into consideration many husbandry and herd management events in order for a farm to work most productively and be most financially beneficial.
Breed of Cattle and Location:
Australia's beef industry is all over the country (refer to figure below); however some parts are more suited to particular breeds than others. Bos Taurus cattle are found in the more southern areas, where the climate is cooler, whereas Bos Inidicus, also known as Zebu breeds, prefer hotter conditions, therefore are found more in the Northern parts of Australia.
