Nature operates in an endless cycle of interlinked events. At Beefmaster we respect the laws of nature and seek always to work them. Each element of our operation is carefully planned to take environmental considerations into account.
Firstly, at Beefmaster we produce a large portion of our own feed in soil fertilized by the manure the cattle and lamb produce, thus reducing our dependence on harmful chemical fertilizers. The cattle and lamb are fed rations specially formulated by a nutritionist to optimize the well-being of the animals in our care.
Animals are kept in specially designed pens to minimize stress and disease, as well as requiring minimal but easy handling. Rainwater runoff from the pens goes into an evaporation system located as far from the pens as possible, which minimizes the spread of disease while keeping the animals in a dry environment.
All animals are transported in specially designed trucks to reduce stress and discomfort. Animals are transported during the ideal hours of the day to maintain their health. The proper transportation of animals is critical and is always a priority. All Beefmaster livestock vehicles are monitored by a state-of-the-art Road Traffic Management System.
At our processing facility waste is kept to a minimum, especially waste that enters the municipal waste system, and any waste products that may be hazardous to human health are taken care of in a special, purpose-designed processing facility.
Beefmaster is constantly seeking ways to minimize our dependence of non-renewable energy. All production, processing, and waste systems are closely monitored with the cooperation of the relevant government bodies to ensure that we operate to the latest and best environmental standards.
