Webinar: PCAS - What’s involved?

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Date: 04/07/2013
Time: 13:30 to 14:30
Webinar Location: Online

Producers across Australia have shown considerable interest in the new Pasturefed Cattle Assurance System (PCAS) since it was launched recently.

PCAS is designed to deliver a robust, internationally-recognised standard to which ‘grassfed’ brand claims can be attached.

Premiums of 10-20c/kg have already been discussed by early-adopter processors.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • the purpose of the PCAS program and what it covers
  • what’s involved in becoming Certified Pasturefed
  • understanding the annual audit process
  • allowable feed inputs, cattle purchases

Guest presenters

Join PCAS program coordinator Angela Schuster and Teys Australia Livestock General manager Geoff Teys, with hosts Jon Condon (Beef Central) and John James (FutureBeef).

They will outline the purposes of the PCAS program; why it was introduced by Cattle Council of Australia; the audit process and what’s involved in compliance; the ‘ins and outs’ of allowable feedstuffs under a pasture fed standard; allowable cattle movements from non-PCAS properties and other information of value to stakeholders considering joining the program.

Join this free webinar on Thursday 4 July to learn more.
