The key to successfully managing the business for cattle inventory is in knowing which components to add and remove at which times in order to reduce risk. If you don’t have this data in your hands then you will get it from your suppliers but they may also try to manipulate or even hide this information from you.
Once you know the data you need you can be prepared to manage the financial position of your business on an annual budget and decide what to invest money on. One of the best ways to build up your cattle inventory is by creating a spread sheet that will list all your assets and then show the asset value when compared with the cost of acquisition.
This type of system helps you manage the cattle inventory effectively, which is the secret to success of any cattle business. You can use your spreadsheet to add and remove cattle from your herd based on their existing performance and future potential. When you create a spreadsheet, you will also see the different commodities of cattle that you have available to purchase for your operation.
There are many businesses who have developed unique livestock management systems that keep track of their inventory by information like the average amount of feed required for each cow, the number of feeders needed per cow, the number of feed buckets per cow, and so on. This has increased the productivity of many farmers.
The trick is to not only add, and remove cattle but also to make the system easier to understand by using colors and symbols to explain each component. Using this method you will be able to implement the process easily and as the owner of the cattle farm you will not have to worry about making adjustments every few months. This can be done manually but it can become very time consuming and you may find yourself rushing around and missing important meetings due to doing it too fast.
You must also understand that by adding more cattle to your cattle farm you can bring the price of the stock down due to the increase in the number of cattle available. You can also make money by selling a calf or a steer at its young age in order to lower the prices of the stock. You may want to hold off on the sale of these animals because these are the animals that are in the early stages of life and in good condition and are good for several years.
With a spread sheet you will be able to create charts with different commodities that will help you manage the different cattle inventory and other financial aspects of your farm better. You will be able to determine if you are buying too much stock or not enough stock at the right prices.
There are other ways to control the rate of damage from DHT such as feeding it with antibiotics or using a net based on its weight. The key is to understand the risk factor, the profitability of the operation and the bulls and bears of any particular commodity. This is the key to controlling the livestock inventory and financial issues associated with them.
