Title: Characterization of Production System of Beef Fattening Farms in Khartoum State
Author: Altayeb, Hanadi
Abstract: Beef continues to play a major role in the global food balance of highly developed countries and its elimination from the modern human diet seems unlikely (Pisulewski et al. 2001). In recent years food has been viewed not only as a source of nutrients but also in terms of its effects on human health (Belisle et al. 1998). The increasing consumer demand for high-quality beef led breeders to adopt cattle breeds suitable for fattening, and to use technologies for rearing and feeding young slaughter cattle (Belisle et al. 1998). Sudan western Baggara cattle is the major stock of meat production found in Khartoum State and so it is the major beef producing cattle in the country. They provide the bulk of meat consumed in northern Sudan and contribute considerably in export trade of beef cattle (AOAD, 1974).
