This article serves to give you guidance on how best to do Beef fattening. Beef prices normally changes with season and higher prices are realized for good grades during the dry season when most animals are in a deteriorating condition. The choice of reconditioning and adding some weight of the animal during a short period normally pays off when done properly.
