The bull system developed on this farm can be regarded as an efficient one year bull beef production system. To meet animal performance requirements, however, the amount of pasture harvested per hectare is low.

Massey University students’ estimates for feed harvested per hectare ranged from to kg -’ on the bull beef unit. A general rule of thumb for feeder space is to provide 18 to 22 inches for calves up to pounds, 22 to 26 inches per head for calves pounds to market weight, 26 to 30 inches per head for mature cows, and 14 to 18 inches per head for calves.

If you have feed available at. Finishing Bull Beef in 16 Months - Can it Be Done. 21 January Ensuring the very reachable target of kg/day growth rate is managed is vital for finishing bulls young in.

The bull must be adapted to its environment and production system. For example, in an area with a tick problem, a bull with a thicker skin and tick tolerance will perform better.

Growth potential This is a highly heritable trait that reacts quickly to selective breeding. In technical terms, it. The natural leanness of bull beef makes it attractive to consumers but it can be slightly less tender than steers.

Frame scoring is simply a way of categorizing beef cattle from smallest to largest based on their size (hip height).Frame scores are assigned on a scale from 1 to 9, with 1 being the smallest and 9 being the largest-framed cattle.

There is a target slaughter weight corresponding to each frame score. Traditionally, suckler bull beef production was based on the provision of concentrate-based diets until slaughter (i.e., intensive indoor systems) [1,2].The profitability of such systems in temperate regions, can be enhanced by the use of cheaper feedstuffs such as conserved or grazed pasture [].Thus, O’Riordan et al.
