Answer:

Answer:

The term marketing is defined as the conversion of goods with pricing by the sellers and buyers and moving livestock from the place of production of place of consumption. The marking plays an important role in the economy of a country and for this the producer must be intelligent in terms of marketing strategies, production, and making prices for the products.
Based on the preference of seller and buyer the grading of animals, its products and animal carcasses is usually done by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture). By doing this USDA improves the communication between buyers and sellers and it helps for the producers of live-stock that is required as per the buyer's requirements. However, certain private companies have their own grading system. For example, USDA standard quality grades for cows are, choice, select, standard, commercial, utility, cutter and canner.
