Two upcoming cattle sales will be devoted exclusively to Verified Beef Production Plus cattle. The buying sessions, put on by JGL Livestock, are the first time cattle procurement has been offered exclusively for VBP+ cattle.
The animals will be processed at Cargill’s High River plant and are eligible for the Canadian Beef Sustainability Acceleration pilot project if they are VBP+ audited and enrolled in the Business Info Exchange Systems (BIXS).
Participants in the pilot project have been receiving an extra $10 to $20 per head.
The two sessions will take place Oct. 17 and Nov. 14 in Moose Jaw, and to be eligible, cattle must be hauled there to be weighed.
