Author(s): Lucas F Hetharia, Selvia Tharuliling, Suparman and Moh Zali
Beef cattle are a type of large ruminant livestock that have become part of the smallholder farming system and are reared under various maintenance patterns. Beef cattle farming is a livestock business where the main commodity is meat. Beef cattle are usually reared and endeavored to reach the maximum weight or even exceed the proper weight. This paper concludes that the skills and knowledge of breeders regarding livestock management greatly determine the level of productivity of these livestock. Therefore, increasing knowledge, skills and changing the behavior of breeders in raising livestock is very necessary, if farmers do not know the technical aspects of beef cattle development properly. In this way, the goal of meeting regional and national meat needs will not be achieved, as well as the level of meat productivity to meet food needs will not be met and the profits obtained by breeders will not be optimal.
