PCAS Approved Supplements
Feed manufacturers are now able to apply to supply ‘PCAS-Approved’ feed and forage products to producers through the Pasturefed Cattle Assurance System.
As a certified quality assurance program, PCAS has always set a series of requirements that outline the feeding, management and handling requirements for eligible animals - but through the new approval system for feed manufacturers, producers can be assured that any feed or forage supplements that has been ‘PCAS-Approved’ is acceptable to feed their livestock under the program.
Through the process, manufacturers require approval from PCAS Administration and then their details are provided to producers through the PCAS website. Manufacturers are that receive approval will be able to supply a niche and growing market of PCAS certified producers.
'PCAS Approved Supplements' has been developed to sit within the quality assurance program and will enable feed manufactures to apply for approval to use the PCAS logo on feed and forage products.
Feed manufacturers must be a full or provisional member of The Stock Feed Manufacturers' Council of Australia (SFMCA) and must therefore be Feed Safe certified.
Any feed manufacturers interested in getting involved can contact the PCAS program and producers are able to access a list of 'PCAS-Approved' supplements below.
