Stewardship is a practice that embodies the management of resources such as land, water and cattle. Here at Barrett and Crofoot Feedyard we take stewardship practices very seriously. We are providing consumers with a safe and ethically produced beef product, and that can only be done through implementing high standards of quality throughout both our locations. Our team at Barrett and Crofoot are trained in quiet and stress free handling practices, which greatly affects their overall health and performance.
BEEF QUALITY ASSURANCE
"Beef Quality Assurance is a nationally coordinated, state implemented program that provides systematic information to U.S. beef producers and beef consumers of how common sense husbandry techniques can be coupled with accepted scientific knowledge to raise cattle under optimum management and environmental conditions. BQA guidelines are designed to make certain all beef consumers can take pride in what they purchase – and can trust and have confidence in the entire beef industry."
At Barrett and Crofoot we believe strongly in the techniques and sciences designed by Beef Quality Assurance, which is why we require our employees to be BQA certified.
