ANGUS CATTLE FARM – A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS
A successful Angus cattle business starts with top genetics and is being empowered by the entire production process – starting with cattle care, feeding and breeding to the technical equipment used on the field.
The Aberdeen Angus breed is one of the few breeds in Romania, that is raised especially for meat. This has beneficial effects on both beef production and in terms of profitability when talking about establishing and developing an Angus farm.
Angus uses only natural resources: the pasture. The principle behind Angus breeding activity is: systems as simple as possible. Angus cattle are easy to raise, they live on pasture throughout the year, regardless of the season, which leads to a decreasing rate of maintenance costs. Angus cattle have an increased yield in an extensive breeding system, ensuring a high percentage of meat after slaughtering and a premium final product due to intense marbling. Also, Angus cattle have a high life expectancy that reduces the replacement costs farmers would have to bear. Angus cattle live for a long time and are able to withstand one pregnancy a year with good milk production, that allows a rapid growth of the calf. Romania’s ecological pastures, EU farming subsidies, knowledge of the rural farmers and the increase of the potential for beef cattle with the decrease of milk cow production are added to the list of reasons why a business in this field can be very efficient.
Romania’s potential is still very offering for farmers, only 15 heads of cattle feed on 100 hectares of land, while in Ireland, for example, there are 130 heads per 100 hectares. Their evolution has been spectacular since 2008, when we started this business with Angus cattle in Romania, now reaching a total core of over 30.000 heads across the country.
Agriculture can become the engine of the Romanian economy and this is already the belief of the two Swiss investors who have set up a successful business in Romania – Karpaten Meat farms. Join the largest Angus network and become our partner.
