The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association has resources for producers interested in exporting beef to Europe.
That requires participating in Canada’s Growth Enhancing Product (GEP) free program, which also enables other market opportunities that require documented confirmation of the absence of growth-enhancing products.
Concerns have been recently expressed by cattle producers that they are unable to identify EU eligible operations.
Cattle must be kept within the eligible supply chain and documented through “transfer certificates,” and producers must work with a CFIA-approved veterinarian.
