I found something interesting in the news today. According to Beef Magazine, the USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service has been able to finalize its Beef Cattle Production Systems Checklist. You can find that on their website. This will allow the assessment of organizations that have beef animal welfare programs.

Greg Ibach, the Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs, says this is the first animal care program for livestock that has been approved by the AMS under an assessment program that “establishes a strong framework for industry animal welfare standards.” For more information, click here. You will find the full article from Beef Magazine here.
