Respond to the challenge of Japanese beef farmer
Japanese beef is preferred at home and abroad. Its production is generally divided between beef cattle breeders (breeders) who raise mother and calf producers and fattening cattle breeders (fattening farmers) that purchase and raise their calves. Producers have a number of pre-calving procedures, such as oestrus monitoring, insemination, pregnancy assessment and delivery, but for producers with a reliable mandate to calving, These times are correct. It is not an exaggeration to say that grasping affects farm management.
Since cattle are living organisms, there are differences between individuals and their health status varies depending on their age, birth order or climate, and the natural environment at that time. If the number of heads is tens, hundreds or more, it will be difficult to manage the overall, but if you add documents such as delivery notices, certificates of fertilization, the workload is increasing.
