Shining a Light on Cattle Feeders
WCFA members are doing great things on a daily basis. Raising cattle to provide one of the most protein and nutrient-dense foods in our diet is a big deal. But in today's world, it's often overlooked, undersold, misunderstood or worse. It's time to shine a light on the specific ways cattle feeders are doing things right, and doing them better today than ever. Our best practices are based on experience, backed by science, and implemented through technology.
But before all that, it starts with our humanity. See the human side of cattle feeding, and you'll see the obligation we feel to the cattle and environment we steward, and the customers we serve who want to feel confident about the beef they eat. We get it, and we want you to "get" us!
