Jobs for marketing cattle

The business of cattle is very famous
these days. Cattle market is the
place where the cattle are kept to be sold. There cattle are raised in pasture
lands or specific farms and are then sent to the markets. Even when they are
raised, they are to be given a special environment where they can live without
any difficulty. Different things are to be kept in mind if somebody wants to
start such a business.

Things to be kept in mind:

Before starting a business related to
livestock animals and setting up a cattle
, a number of things are to be remembered. The budget should be made
accurately, and all the money required for feeding and animals and other needs
should be kept in mind. The deadstock should be treated well.  Most of the cattle are sold as a result of
auction, or in markets. The different routes of selling cattle are: auction,
private treaty, selling directly, selling purebred and dispersal sale. Auction
is where a lot of animals are displayed and there prices are set by the
customers. Private treaty is when the buyer and seller negotiate privately and
make the deal.

The cattle can be sold by advertising
about it in the newspaper, etc. The interested people who want to buy animals
after reading the ad contact u themselves. 
In direct sale, live cattle are not sold. Rather meat or beef is sold. Otherwise,
it is same as private treaty. Purebred sale is for the people who want to buy
seed stock or cow calf herds. This is a source of selling heifers and yearling
bulls. They can be bought by auction or private treaty. In dispersal sale, a
complete herd can be sold at the same time.

Managing crops and hay:

When animals come to the cattle market, they are moved from a
farm or pasture. It is important to provide them food in order to keep them
healthy and alive. Food for the animals can either be purchased or can be produced
as well. If you are willing to produce your own feed for the cattle, planning
should be done for this. The feed depends upon the type of the animals. Some
artificial feed is also produced for different purposes. Whatever feed is
required; it must be of good quality and healthy for the animals. If the food
is to be taken from the crops, they must be seeded and harvested timely. Silage
should also be harvested when required. There should not be any spoilage when
dealing with hay. The required machinery should be working properly.

Disease in cattle:

There are different diseases that can
be caught be the cattle. The disease either influences a single individual or
the whole herd. The treatments are different for different diseases. Some of
the diseases are related to respiration and are called respiratory diseases.
Coughing, nasal and eye discharge are some of the symptoms for them. There are
many other diseases as well. They can be cured by different treatments.
Vaccination is a way to prevent the animals from catching diseases.
