Experts in this field are valuation specialists who have focused their studies on the monetary worth of livestock. Valuation is the process of estimating the worth of an item using professional knowledge, expertise and judgement. In this case, it relates to making estimations on the value of animals raised in an agricultural setting to produce labour and commodities such as meat, eggs, milk, fur, leather, and wool.
Valuation of livestock is generally performed for the purposes of insurance, sales or trade and taxation. It allows for a proper understanding of the owner’s wealth and business value, and informs proper taxation amounts. Knowing the value of their items and assets also benefits the owner in that they can then adequately protect and maintain their investments, so that their value is preserved. Valuation livestock is often performed upon the sale of a business or simply as a price-setting exercise when valuing the output of the animals. Value is a somewhat nebulous thing, but can be determined by examining the number, condition, age, pedigree, and scale of output of the animals.
Experts in this area come from many professional backgrounds. Many will have worked in agriculture, either from a managerial standpoint or directly with the animals. Some will be trained valuation experts, or perhaps have worked in valuation for an insurance company. They may also be business experts in farming and livestock specifically. The specific specialisation and background needed in your livestock valuation expert will be determined by the matter which requires examination.
