Milk. Steak. Burgers. What's your pleasure? Did you know that beef cattle are cattle raised for meat production and are different from dairy cattle which are used for milk production. The meat of mature or almost mature cattle is mostly known as beef. In the production of beef there are primarily three stages: cow-calf operations, backgrounding, and feedlot operations. Cow-calf operations are designed specifically to breed cows for their offspring. From here the calves are backgrounded for a feedlot. Animals that are grown specifically for the feedlot are known as feeder cattle and the goal of these animals is fattening. Animals that are not grown for a feedlot are typically female and are commonly known as heifers. While the principal use of beef cattle is meat production, other uses include leather, and beef by-products used in candy, shampoo, cosmetics, insulin and inhalers. Who knew that cows did so much! And did you also know that ranchers need to manage their herd and keep track of the following: Monthly Planning Calving Record Bull Breeding Record Cow Production History Card Breeding Record Medical Log Deworming & Immunizations Cattle Sales Record Expense Records Keep track of your cattle herd with the Cattle Record Book.

The past decade has revealed unfavourable trends in e.g. fertility, udder health and locomotion in some major dairy cattle breeds due to a large increase in production and insufficient consideration of functional traits in the breeding goals. Such unfavourable trends in some functional traits increase costs. Additionally, the enlargement of herds leads to less available labour time per individual cow. This asks for cows that are easy to handle. At the same time, society is demanding a higher welfare standard of animals. These contradicting developments have increased the desire for so called more robust animals. Robustness can be defined as 'the ability to maintain homeostasis in commonly accepted and sustainable herds of the near future'; or 'the ability of the cow to function well in the environment she lives in as well as in a wide range of climates and production systems'. This book contains a series of articles (26) dealing with the concept of robustness, including aspects like evolution, genetics, environment, animal health and welfare, and integrity. Besides the major functional traits also the links to energy balance, hot climatic conditions, and the attitude and input of stakeholders towards robustness as part of the breeding program are discussed. This book is the first attempt to summarise the available knowledge concerning this topic in cattle, making this book unique. The contributions are from authors of 16 countries from all over the world. However, the focus is presently on farm animal level, while in future robustness of the whole production system may also require additional attention.
