Your funds are invested alongside funds gathered from other clients. This pool of funds is used to purchase livestock which is looked after and managed by our farmer Beefcor, who have over 80 years of cattle farming experience and are one of the largest feedlots in South Africa.
The livestock is fed and maintained until it reaches the optimum weight to be sold to an abattoir.
The value of your investment is based on the weight gain of the cattle as well as the selling (market) price.
You do not own a specific cow but rather a percentage of the herd of cattle held on the farm, depending on how much you contributed towards the pool.
You are invested in a pool with other investors and you own a percentage of the pool which is determined by the amount you’ve invested and the pool size.
Raising pools open and close every 2 months, this means that if you invest your funds at the beginning of the raising pool, your funds will only be used to purchase livestock when the pool closes at the end of two months.
If you invest monthly, your funds will mature every 2 months in the following year.
The invested funds are locked in for 12 months.
