Only SAFA member feedlots can apply for Q-Sure accreditation. Only 10 members have to date been accredited with some others pending.

Discussion with some of the main retail chains has taken place with others to come. The reaction has been very positive and further presentations to top management are planned shortly.

These GMP’s are to serve as a guideline to feedlots and to assist them to implement Feedlot Practices that are compatible to the needs of the consumer, environment and to ensure animal welfare.

It must be remembered that if you in the “Livestock Business” you are in the “People Business” and with the best intentions little will be achieved if GOOD MANAGEMENT PRACTICES are not a company policy, with buy in from the whole staff complement; and lead from the top.

A training programme should be in place for both permanent and casual employees and their respective duties to maintain GMP’s. The programmes should be updated as the need arises.

The ultimate feedlot objective is to provide consistently sufficient quantities of meat products that meet the quality, price, health and safety expectations of the consumer every time.
