Animal welfare is a key value which guides our decision making at all levels of beef production. 

We require producers to maintain high animal welfare standards at all times.  For some of our product lines we require additional third party animal welfare certifications such as Global Animal Partnership.

We have worked with top experts in the animal industry, including Dr. Temple Grandin, Bud Williams, and Tom Noffsinger to design corrals, feeding locations, and processing plant facilities to minimize stress to the cattle.  The processing plant includes covered and ventilated yards to protect cattle from the elements.  Plant personnel are regularly trained in humane handling best practices.
