Cattle farming is a highly intricate endeavor that demands meticulous planning and preparation to ensure a prosperous outcome. Once the pre-operational phase of cattle farming has been completed, the next step is to implement operational preparations to begin farming via the cattle production model. This model is categorized into two primary business models: Cattle Breeding and Cattle Fattening.
A production system that involves breeding and hybridization with several sub-business models in Indonesia, including the SISKA , SISKA Extensive, Cut & Carry, and O pen Grazing.
On the other hand, the feedlot sector represents an intensive production system with the goal of growing and/or fattening cattle until they reach slaughter weight. The feedlot sector can be further divided into growing (backgrounding) and finishing (fattening) phases.
Aside from differing in general intent, these two business models also have different practices for facilities, feed, and cattle management. For example, the necessary infrastructure needed to support a Breeding system may not necessarily be applicable to a Fattening model, with both necessitating their own regulations and operational intricacies.
