This innovative program is designed to prepare cattle for backgrounding or feedlot entry, while maintaining industry-standard animal welfare protocols.
“We want to guarantee suitability of cattle for feedlots through both traceability and tractability to the standard that the feedlots expect. We work closely with our livestock producers to make them more productive, more efficient and do it in a sustainable and ethical way.”
- Rob Inglis, Elders Livestock Production Coordinator.
Our Livestock production programs are a complimentary service for our livestock clients (input costs such as vaccines excluded), while we also offer a fee-for-service option for non-Elders clients.
*Vaccine choice subject to destination and sub-species – one or two shot vaccination. Proof of vaccination (at producers' expense) is required.
“One of the reasons we did this was to get them feedlot ready for consignment to JBS feedlots. It’s all about traceability, industry best practices and just trying to improve the way we manage our cattle. The cattle seem to look a lot better with what we are doing and a lot quieter to handle. This is our third year of doing it and we will definitely be doing it again.”
- Jason Schlig, Walla Walla, New South Wales.
