Reputation Feeder Cattle ®
Page 1 of 5
Reputation Feeder Cattle® (RFC) is an added-value certification program that evaluates calf group inherent genetic merit, documents its calf-management history, and then predicts its performance potential, both in the feedyard and as carcasses on the rail.
The Reputation Feeder Cattle® program is simple and has three integral parts:
- RFC evaluates the inherent genetic merit of a specific calf group, and then identifies its unique strengths and weaknesses in the six traits that drive feedlot performance and carcass quality.
- RFC documents that calf group’s management history (health, handling, and nutrition), and then verifies its herd of origin to ensure program integrity. Note: RFC will honor and reciprocate with other USDA PVP programs, providing they include Age & Source Verification.
- RFC predicts that calf group’s performance potential of its trait strengths (i.e., growth, efficiency, and carcass quality), as well as predicting its relative economic value-added.
Reputation Feeder Cattle program enables the entire cattle production supply chain to operate more effectively together to produce animals that are better suited to meet
