With Grandview's vision of being the leading producer of the Candian Beef industry, our key focus is to ensure our cattle are healthy, well-fed, handled humanely and harboured comfortably, resulting in the safe and utmost quality beef produced for our domestic and international customers.
Grandview expects that the controls implemented and monitored by our consulting veterinarian are in compliance for immunizing, treating and handling cattle on a daily basis, where low-stress principles are routine.
Alongside of our monthly internal reviews of our cattle handling procedures, Grandview also commits to an annual review and third-party audit administered by Dr. Lynn Locatelli (DVM), who promotes and teaches the techniques of Bud Williams, to increase animal welfare and quality of life.
Awarded with honours of Environmental Stewardship, it is with no doubt that Grandview is proactive and consistently reduces its environmental impacts on the global community. Grandview participates in practices such as:
The Watershed Evaluation of Beneficial Management Program (WEBs)
