Cargill to study improvements for beef feedyard sustainability

Company to partner with consultants to create verified beef chain sustainability assessment program.    

Cargill Cattle Feeders has entered into an agreement with a consultancy, Kennedy and Coe, LLC, to create a verified beef supply chain sustainability assessment program for Cargill feedyards.

Cargill says the assessment could eventually be expanded to include cattle production in collaboration with stocker operators, ranchers, as well as with Cargill's strategic feedyard partners.

The assessment will begin with a yearlong focus on the economic, environmental and community impacts of Cargill's four feedyards in Texas, Kansas and Colorado.
