First cattle feed gains PCAS mark of approval
GRAINCORP Liquid Feeds is the first approved feed manufacturer to join the Pasturefed Cattle Assurance System Approved supplements scheme.
Feed manufacturers are now able to supply PCAS-Approved feed and forage products to producers.
PCAS is an assurance program developed by the Cattle Council of Australia to determine feed production standards.
Under PCAS standards, manufacturers must prove cattle have access to open pasture, fully traceable and free from growth hormones.
Cattle Council president Howard Smith said the approved supplement scheme would make things more transparent for PCAS producers.
“The PCAS Approved scheme was developed to make it clear for all producers what feed and forage products are eligible for use under PCAS,” Mr Smith said.
“GLF is the first feed manufacturer to be approved under the new system and it’s a sign of great things to come as PCAS continues to grow.”
Jeremy Melloy, the national business manager for Liquid Feeds, said GLF was supportive of PCAS and the supplements scheme.
“GLF strongly supports the Cattle Council initiative to provide producers with quality-assurance programs such as PCAS to ensure a sustainable future for the Australian beef industry,” Mr Melloy said.
