Progressive Beef

Verified. Trusted. Sustainable.

The Progressive Beef™ program is a third-party verified series of best management practices which ensure your beef is safe, well-cared-for and raised in a sustainable way. The system is based on standard operating procedures, training and verification of compliance with the Progressive Beef standard. The program was built using key industry experts' input to produce a production system that has substance and integrity.

Progressive Beef

Progressive Beef is a quality management system that focuses on process control, animal care, sustainability, and responsible antibiotic use.  Bi-yearly audits ensure compliance with specific program requirements to ensure that our animals receive good care and produce safe and healthy beef.  One audit is an unannounced internal audit conducted by our quality assurance team, and the other is a 3rd party audit conducted by a USDA approved independent auditing company not affiliated with our business. Each audit is very much like a report card, in that after each audit the feedyard receives a score. The metrics involved play a key role in our path of continuous improvement.


In an effort to ensure that the Progressive Beef standards for animal care, sustainability, and responsible antibiotic use are met daily, the auditor assesses:

  • Cattle handling and daily care
  • Cattle home pen living conditions
  • Cattle water tank cleanliness
  • Cattle feed nutrition, handling and delivery which follows developed HACCP principles for safety
  • Antibiotic use on the farm (traceability as well as animal withdrawal records to ensure that meat is residue free)
  • Employee safety guidelines
  • Sustainability practices and measurement
