Beef Cattle - Huntingdon County Fair

Beef Cattle

Every day, 76 million American consume beef. Beef cattle are primarily raised for meat production. However, they are used for more than just meat. 60 percent of a beef cow is used to make other products like insulin, dish soap and footballs. One cowhide can make up to 20 footballs. The average weight of a beef cow when it does to market is approximately 1200 pounds. It usually takes a little over a year to reach this weight in a production setting. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication by farmers to get one feed cow to market.
