The Beef InfoXchange System (BIXS) has launched a buying club for those enrolled in its data collection system.
The club will offer producers “deep discounts from retail partners,” said BIXS president and CEO Hubert Lau.
There’s a $50 annual fee for joining the club but it’s not charged until a participant’s savings have reached $100, said Lau. The club’s first retailer is Fountain Tire.
BIXS was created by the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association but is now owned by a privately held company. Revenue from the buying club will allow the company to grow its data-sharing system, said Lau.
