Produce Certified Lowline Beef
Certified Lowline Beef (CLB) is a term used by Australian Lowline cattle producers who have entered into an agreement with the Australian Lowline Cattle Association (ALCA). Eligibility to join the programme and market beef as ‘ Certified Lowline Beef ‘ is determined by the signing of and adherence to the terms of the CLB Producers Agreement.
To enter into an agreement, producers must be current members of ALCA and the provenance of their beef must be able to be proven by DNA and parent verification processes – therefore the minimum requirement of one registered Lowline parent must be met. The ultimate in traceability!
This traceability provides a guarantee of quality and providence for the consumer and a product management tool (to help identify the best beef producing genetics) for the producer.
In today’s world, there are many avenues and opportunities for the smaller producer to enter the beef industry – joining the CLB programme will facilitate this.
