The article focuses on the effect of the demand for larger cattle joints on their finishing weights. This consumer demand has compelled the retail butchery business of Paul Humphrey to finish their cattle at higher weights. Cattle for the farm are sourced from local rearers at three to five months old. Providing fresh bedding daily and access to fresh straw for forage helps relax cattle, ensuring they are content and eat sufficient ration to maximize growth.
