what are the benefits of cattle farming?
The benefits of cattle farming are:
1) Milch Cattle are used for the production of milk.
2) Draught cattle are used for labour connected with agriculture like tilling, irrigation and carting.
3) Cattle farming increases the overall income of the farmers and raise their standard of living.
4) Animal wastes can be used for enriching soil.
5) It provides employment to a large number of people.
Besides being nutritious and delicious and a nutrient dense food, cattle provide over 900 byproducts that are used by EVERYONE. They contribute to the roads we drive on, medicinals and pharmaceuticals, leather and other products, shampoos and soaps and lotions, even the tires on our cars. There is so much we get from cows, it's amazing that people think they can truly be vegetarian! Cattle also act as fire retardants in brushy area and can reduce the increasingly dangerous "fire load" that we all see, esp. in the West. If we don't let fires burn (naturally), then we should allow cows to graze, esp. on marginal lands where the brush and undergrowth thrives. As a result, there is nothing for grazing for deer and other wildlife and the brush SUCKS up water faster than people can imagine.
If water, fire, and open land is of importance to people, then they should learn to appreciate and understand the incredible contributions cattle -- who coexist with wildlife and waterfowl and rivers/streams, etc. -- without harming them! The misinformation abounds about cattle, which is terribly sad because they can contribute so much environmentally to our lives. Where cattle are given open space, wildlife also thrives. In fact, 75% of ALL preservation of wildlife is protected by RANCHES and private lands -- NOT public land!
hope this helps..
