Applying techniques to use Total Mixed Ration – TMR to build high-yield beef cattle models for breeding and fattening. For each model, feeding 06 Brahman crossbred bulls with TMR diets; but for the control, cows are fed by their normal feeds. The time for feeding cows is 90 days. The results: for the growing beef model, cows which were fed by TMR diet could be gained higher weight than cows in the control group (in this model, cows had weight gain of 580 g/head/day; in the control group, cows had weight gain of 474 g/head/day) and the turnover of cows in this model was 602,000 VND/head; the cost effect of the model was increasingly compared to the control of 30.4%. For the fattening rearing model with TMR diets, cows had a higher weight gain than cows in the control group (913 vs 789 g/head/day); the turnover of cows was 715,100 VND/head higher than the control and the cost effect was increasingly compared to the control of 23.4%.
