IN 14-inch rainfall districts most rainfall occurs between May and October. It is d i f f i cult to keep beef animals fattening on summer dry pastures but such areas do have a ready supply of locally grown cereals.
Using these materials as the basis of a supplement it is possible to market prime baby-beef by June-July.
The higher prices obtained for this "winter" beef more than offset the cost of supplementary feed.
