Grass Fed Small and Very Small Producer Program

Do you market 49 or less grass-fed cattle per year?  If so, you may be interested in the Grass Fed Program for Small and Very Small Producers.  The Program is a verification tool for producers to certify that animals meet the requirements of the Agricultural Marketing Service’s Grass (Forage) Fed Marketing Claim Standard.

The purpose of the Program is to allow small and very small producers a means to market their calves or market ready cattle as USDA Certified grass-fed.  The Agricultural Marketing Service will review the documentation and plan submitted by the producer and, if sufficient, will approve the producer and the cattle at that location as meeting the requirements of the Grass (Forage) Fed Marketing Claim Standard.

The Program is a less costly application process for small and very small producers.  The application costs $108.00 and certification is for a two-year period.  After certification, marketing as USDA Certified grass-fed beef is possible, along with the marketing advantages that come with the certification.
