Certified Angus Beef Board Chairman Says Sales Continue to Trend Higher This Fiscal Year

Certified Angus Beef Board Chairman Says Sales Continue to Trend Higher This Fiscal Year

Itís a good time to be involved with Certified Angus Beef, says CAB Board Chairman John Pfeiffer. The branded beef program is on a record-breaking pace this year thanks to an expanding producer base growing more beef to meet CABís 10 specific quality standards.

The Mulhall, Okla., rancher says the success of the program means more supply to meet the demands of consumers. Pfeiifer says that "where we once had three or four percent of the cattle being qualified to meet the ten standards of Certified Angus Beef, we've had some months now where thirty percent of the kill on a monthly basis has made the Certified Angus Beef standards."

Pfeiffer adds that sales continue to grow and that current trends suggest an increase of 100 million pounds of CAB may be sold this fiscal year.

Radio Oklahoma Network Farm Director Ron Hays caught up with Pfeiffer during the OKC Farm Show last week. Listen to his CAB update, including new genomic sampling and chute-side health testing, during this edition of the Beef Buzz.†
