Get some studies under your belt on genetics and reproduction, as well as ruminant physiology, pasture and range management, cattle handling and behaviour, health, business and financial management, accounting, sales, etc. You're better off taking an Animal Science program with a minor in Agribusiness and choosing your courses so that they kind of lean towards specializing in beef cattle.
But remember that what you study in the classroom and from books won't necessarily be appropriate for real-life situations. Some of the technicalities you study in college will help, but there's more to ranching than just raising cattle.
