EPISODE 186 DETAILS

CARE PROGRAM CATTLE FROM IMI GLOBAL

CARE Certified

Where Food Comes From CARE Certified is a suite of sustainability standards that certifies participating farmers and ranchers are implementing best practices in animal care, environmental stewardship and supporting their local communities and the people within them. Beef, pork, poultry, dairy and fish are all available

Animal Care

Farms and ranches care about their animals, they are their livelihood.  They spend every day with these animals to ensure they are as healthy and content as possible. The Animal Care pillar ensures that farms and ranches are caring for their animals.  Things we look at include spacing, access to food and water, nutrition plans, how animals are transported and more. 

Environmental Stewardship

Farms and ranches know that they have to be good stewards of the land today in order to have a tomorrow. The Environmental Stewardship pillar of each CARE Standard ensures consumers that farms and ranches have procedures and management plans in place. Consumers can rest assured that CARE products have come from farms and ranches that are doing what they can to improve the environment.

 

People & Community

Farms and ranches aren’t built by one person, they are built by a community.  Whether it’s helping your neighbors do chores when they’re shorthanded, donating the food they’ve raised to the local school or simply being there when a natural disaster hits. CARE represents a community of farms and ranches that are committed to doing the right thing.  They lean on each other when they need it, and they give back to their local communities and the people within them.

Cattle Industry News

BIRD FLU UPDATE: NEW CASES IN MICHIGAN, NORTH DAKOTA CHECKS IN, LAWMAKERS WEIGH IN

State animal health officials confirmed new cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in dairy cows in Michigan. That announcement comes as North Dakota announced no cases so far and U.S. senators called for better communication among regulators to help stem the tide of new outbreaks. 

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) announced positive tests for HPAI in dairy cows in Clinton, Gratiot and Ionia counties, with additional testing expected soon. MDARD stated that the best tool available to combat the spread of HPAI, regardless of species, is using enhanced biosecurity efforts that include isolating new or returning animals on farms, monitoring the health of animals daily, and cleaning and disinfecting trailers used to haul animals.

Meanwhile, officials in North Dakota reported there have been no cases of HPAI in cattle as of May 10, although the infections of dairy cows in nine other states this spring continues to be monitored, according to State Veterinarian Dr. Ethan Andress.

USDA recently announced plans to provide a total of $98 million to help states and ranchers stem the spread of HPAI beyond birds as state and federal officials continue to monitor cases in 42 herds so far, including South Dakota. Enhanced biosecurity efforts are expected to remain in place as new information about HPAI in cows is gathered, officials added.

PROPER COOKING KILLS H5N1 IN GROUND BEEF

With the continued spread of H5N1, some have questioned the proper way to prepare beef to ensure its safety.  The USDA said in its latest update that ongoing research shows that standard recommended procedures for cooking ground beef eliminates the H5N1 virus. USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service or APHIS reported that no virus remained in burgers cooked to 145 and 160 degrees Fahrenheit and that these results validate that recommended cooking temperatures are sufficient to kill H5N1 in meat.
