Nam am interested yazi

GNR 983 Activity 4. Environmental impact assessment regulations 2014.

Type of breed will be used for feedlot must be an early mature breed (Bonsmara, Simbra or beef master) Your weaners must at least start with a weight of 180-230kg , they must be at least 7-9 months old. Before you introduce your animals to feed, it is important to process them (hormone injection and vaccination) All steers must be feed according to a daily intake of the animal.

Always grade your animals according to their body weight. Avoid to use too much grain on the stater ration but supply more roughage. Consider the condition score when you select your weaners, at least take 3,5 - 4 condition score.

Let me park here

But before starting, i would say, take note of the following to avoid any losses. 1. purchase price of your weaners( nothing less than 205kg, preferably +/-220kg) , 2. The breed(Bonsmaras, Simbras respond better to feeds), 3. Be sure of who you are going to sell to and at what live price per kilo, get a buy guarantee/agreement(very important). 4. Have your own scale, 5. Formulate an affordable feed mix, mix yourself(it works out cheaper). Plan for exactly 120days and sell. Their weight should be at around 430kg - 450kg by then. Hope that helps..

Interesting.
