Raising Grass Fed Steers

I had the opportunity to work on my uncle's farm taking care of a few dozen head of steer and I have to admit, after working with dairy cows, these animals were a breeze. The animals themselves were fairly easy to deal with; they pretty much kept to themselves. They grazed themselves on the open fields that we provided and had no problem with my presence and that of the other help. They didn't really like the heat, but there were plenty of trees that provided them shade and they were relatively comfortable. At the end of the season after they'd gained a good amont of weight they were picked up and taken away. If you have adequate space, water, and enough people to look after them, they're easy enough to manage and can yield great profits with a minimal investment
