<Farm Tour>'Hampyeong Livestock' in Hampyeong, Jeollanam-do
3 years rental breeding...
Internalization of breeding cattle-centered farms
Increased economic feasibility by inducing fertility of three or more mothers
In Hampyeong, Jeollanam-do, Hampyeong Cheonji Korean Beef is widely known as a brand of Korean beef representing the region. Kangso Farm Hampyeong Livestock (CEO Go Kwang-du), which mainly breeds breeding cattle of Hampyeong Cheonji Korean cattle and produces superior calves, started breeding Korean cattle in 2018.
It is a new year, but more than any other farmhouse, it is more devoted to breeding.
In particular, he is building an extraordinary competitiveness as a small farmer with meticulous management and records.
CEO Go Kwang-du had been running the Gwangju Car Center in Hampyeong for more than 40 years, but had a dream of raising Korean beef.
The dream of raising Korean cattle, which I have always dreamed of, came true after hearing the news that an acquaintance who had been raising Korean cattle on a small scale would rent a Korean cattle farm on the condition of taking over two years later.
He immediately closed the car center he had been running and entered the path of a Korean Woo-in. He said, “At first, I listened to the words of experienced people and reared them in this or that way.
Then, after consulting on how to operate the farm, I climbed to the top.” He said, “The biggest thing the CEO has gained from raising Korean beef is happiness.
Before that, he said that there was a lot of stress from work, but as he kept Korean cattle and communicated with the cows without being tied to people, he was just happy with the thought that his mind and body were stable and that he has now found his vocation. The breeding scale is 27 mother breeding cattle, and an annual calf.
They are giving birth to 22 heads.
Currently, he is raising a total of 34 calves. He shipped two female calves to the Hampyeong livestock market this year, receiving 4.18 million won and 4.72 million won, respectively. It is not greedy that CEO Go Kwang-du received good grades, and consulted in action.
“The Hampyeong Livestock Consulting Support Headquarters Director Lim Yun-taek said, “In the case of Hampyeong Livestock Representative Go Gwang-du, we are good at recording and managing breeding cattle at an appropriate breeding scale.
Breeding cattle-centered farms should have good individual interest and record rather than size, and breeding of 50 to 60 heads centered on couples is appropriate.
It is more economical to bring the mother to fertility than to organize the mother into meat cattle in the third stage, focusing on the management of individuals with different personalities.” Normally, when slaughtered at the third mountain, it is still growing, so the mother cows are reared for a long time.
It is pointed out that it is often advantageous to do so. In the case of Hampyeong livestock, it is faithful to individual management in breeding, and feed is fed with rice straw and ryegrass, compounded feed, microbial agents, calcium agents, multivitamins and minerals. In particular, calf diarrhea.
In order to prevent and grow intestinal microbes, we are supplying microbial agents and calcium agents for growth, and we plan to have a system that can identify and manage all herds at a glance by supplementing facilities in the future.
CEO Go Kwang-du, who is said to be able to feel the rewards of breeding, is stepping out as a true small-scale farmer when calves fulfill their duties as the base and meat of good Korean beef in all parts of the country.
