BENEFITS OF RAISING & TRADING CATTLE
Gold & Silver vs. Cattle:
Gold & Silver: Good for holding wealth together, especially in a catastrophe, portable, minimize losses, not perishable over any period of time.
Cattle: Food security for survival: You actually are owning & growing FOOD, and gaining value because they are GAINING WEIGHT. Hedge against inflation and currency debasement. Cashflow from trading lightweight feeder cattle vs. running a cow herd. Tax shelter advantages vs. other forms of income.
Agricultural products are perishable: need to harvest crops whether plants or animals at the time they come mature.
Daily commitment to caring for your herd – you don’t need to go it alone!

Guarding Cattle Rustling is on the rise! Rustlers have to know what they’re doing, have a trailer, drive the cattle, load them onto semi National associations are working on improved security Technologies for monitoring & tracking, like car tracking chips, If you can’t start in from of your asset with an AR, you don’t own it Dogs raise the alarm when strangers come around Good working cattle dogs
Loopholes / Special Situations North American cattle industry: Fallout from generations of government intervention has driven away the young people – old-timers selling out, may never have learned how to profitably run the business so their family is not interested, entire operation goes up for sale (example: 80 Acres, house, facilities) Figure out where you want to live first! Look for estate & auction listings: you’ll find ready-to-go operations coming up for sale. House most likely not a new show home, but “good enough”?
