Third Party Non-GMO verified:
So what does this mean?
Oregon Country Beef is Non-GMO Project Verified. To achieve this verification each cooperative rancher providing Oregon Country beef is required to follow rigorous standards to feed cattle consistent to the standards of the Non-GMO Project. Each stage in the beef production including finishing facilities and packing plants are also required to comply with the standard. It has been a lot of work but we are happy to be able to present our customers with a product with this high standard.
To ensure animal welfare each ranch in Oregon Country Beef is audited by The Global Animal Partnership. The Global Animal Partnership is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote and recognize good animal welfare practices. Each of our ranches are certified as at least Global Animal Partnership Step 1 compliant.
why no Growth hormones or Antibiotics?
We really care about you and your family. That's why we never EVER use antibiotics or growth hormones for any of the cows in our program. We just feel that makes for a healthier, better quality beef.
However, we love our cows so if one does get sick, they are treated and removed from our OCB program.
