What Cattle Farming Explain

Cattle farming is taking care of or keeping bulls and cows for meat (beef) or milk (dairy) purpose. Cattle feed on grasses, legumes, roughage etc. That is why they are called herbivores and they are also known as ruminants (because they have one stomach with four compartments). In Nigeria (West Africa), commercial beef cattle farming is very common especially in the Northern part of the country.

Cattle farming is good for making a small amount of money at the expense of animal victims. The money in animal farming is not very good, but this is offset by the false sense that you are providing food for the community and that you are caring for animals although It is a failing industry and is rapidly being replaced with more efficient and ethical plant based farming methods.
