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.
