Abstract: Intensive development of beef cattle breeding is becoming a task of a national scale, which is reflected in all regulatory documents that determine the imperatives of the modern socio-economic development of our country. To solve this problem, of great necessity are scientifically based methods and mechanisms that will increase the intensity of meat production without reducing its biological value and nutritional qualities. This article substantiates the need to improve the forage base for the development of beef cattle breeding due to a more intensive grazing system on the arid territories in the South of Russia. The cattle feeding and keeping technology of that kind will contribute to the development of rural areas, employment and increase in the profitability of the beef production. Territory belongs to the zone of steppe and semi-desert landscapes and is noted for certain problems in terms of the grass and forage base. The conducted comparative analysis of meat obtained due to the technology of stable and grazing keeping of beef cattle bred on the arid territories has proved that pasturing cattle breeding enables the beef to exceed its analogues in biological value and in the composition of essential amino acids.
