Cattle Trading Projects

Live cattle are adult cattle that weigh between 200 and 250 pounds that are required for slaughter, but this may vary by breed. The beef industry is a rapidly growing sector worth trillions of dollars with a global reach. The breeding and processing of beef provides jobs for millions of people around the world, including suppliers, distributors and retailers. Due to the growing number of the world’s population and the general increase in wealth of developing countries’ populations, the demand for beef may increase in the future. However, one needs to remember that investing in this sector is associated with high risk as several factors, including weather and disease, can lead to an increase or decrease of supply and demand for cattle.
