What do cattle order buyers do?
A cattle order buyer purchases cattle for resale. They will inspect and grade or appraise the cattle offered for sale to determine value and yield. The buyer should also arrange to have the cattle transported within 5 days to minimize stress in the cattle.
To be a successful cattle order buyer, a good understanding of livestock production and its business practices is needed. Growing up or working on a farm is good preparation. Another way to obtain experience is to join a 4-H club or Future Farmers of America and help with projects that deal with livestock.
