Beef Breeds and Production in Mauritius
Fresh beef supply, on the local market, is undertaken by some 200 farmers comprising a few small private companies together with the backyard farmers. The private companies import young animals which are fattened until slaughter while the small livestock farmers use mainly the male calves originating from the dairy sector. In this video, you will notice the differences between a beef and a dairy breed. Observe carefully their body conformation and musculature. And pay attention to the various type of beef breeds.
