Use this article as a guide to help determine the financial success of your beef production enterprise. and inadequate feed efficiency and reproductive issues. However, lack of analytical evidence on efficiency levels of farmers in various production systems constrains policy making on optimal resource allocation. In addition, inability to control livestock diseases, such as Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD), has led to low beef supply in Kenya and loss of export markets.
Beef production is increasingly under a spotlight, rightly or wrongly, for being a significant contributor to climate change due to methane emissions from rumen enteric fermentation.

The average slaughter weight of a steer is 1, pounds, so only the last pounds of beef is produced from grain. Thus, beef only uses pounds of grain per pound of total product produced. When corn gets expensive, cattle are typically kept on grass to reach heavier : Chuck Coffey. Intensive Beef Production, Second Edition focuses on the technologies, methodologies, and approaches involved in beef production, including genetics, breeding, feed utilization, fertility, and growth efficiency.

the expense of beef because of its lower price relative to beef. Therefore, beef production efficiency must increase, if beef consumption is to recapture some of its lost market. EFFICIENCY THE KEY TO THE FUTURE It is essential that beef producers become more efficient.

It is an international text with an emphasis on Australian beef production, written by experts in the field. The book begins with an overview of the historical evolution of world beef consumption and introductory chapters on carcass and meat quality, market preparation and world beef production Cited by: The efficiency of beef production goes from 55kg beef per AE per year at a 50pc weaning rate up to kg at a 90pc weaning rate.
This indicates that the maximum productivity of the breeding females described, once fully grown, is around kg beef/AE/year.
BEEF PRODUCTION SYSTEM GUIDELINES 2 Although the author and Teagasc have made reasonable efforts to ensure that the information in this book was correct at time of going to press, the author and Teagasc do not assume and hereby disclaim and File Size: KB.
A deterministic beef efficiency model (BEM) was developed for investigating production efficiency. Efficiency was defined, over the lifetime of the herd, as a ratio of total output (lean meat equivalent) from the herd to total input (feed equivalent in Mcal metabolizable energy, ME) to the herd, and has units of g lean meat Mcal −1 ME.
The model combines three tandem submodels describing: (1 Cited by: 9.

cost of production (Notter et al., a), although this last figure can vary widely depending on the cost assigned to grazed forages. Spreading costs of cow maintenance over larger offspring numbers thus remains the single most important strategy for improving biological efficiency of beef production.
This goal can be achieved by:File Size: KB. county in the state, the greatest concentration of beef cattle production is in the Ozark Mountains of for roughly 54 percent of the total beef cow numbers. Benton and Washington Counties are the two largest counties in terms of all cattle and calves numbers,head, respectively.
At 3% in both metrics, beef is by far the least efficient. We find that reallocating the agricultural land used for beef feed to poultry feed production can meet the caloric and protein demands of ≈ and ≈ million additional people consuming the mean American diet, respectively, roughly 40% of current US by: Driving feed efficiency is crucial in all growing and finishing systems and the factors to focus on are discussed, along with transition management and the attention to detail that is required to optimise cattle feed intake.
