About Ontario Corn Fed Beef
The Ontario Corn Fed Beef program is managed by the Ontario Cattle Feeders’ Association (OCFA). OCFA members are farmers who presently feed over half of the fed cattle in the province.
The mandate of OCFA is to enhance and maintain a sustainable beef industry in Ontario. Many of our member farms have been passed down through the generations. We believe in the future of the family farm and the contribution it can make to rural communities and food production in Ontario. The priority our farmers assign to sustainability led to the launch of the Ontario Corn Fed Beef program in 2001. This program was built on market research which indicated that Ontarians wanted the opportunity to purchase locally produced products. Since then the program has continued to grow, as consumers across the province purchase our corn fed beef products because of their quality and consistency.
When it comes to great beef, we believe there are five key steps:
- Raise cattle on family farms
- Care about animal health and welfare
- Use locally sourced feed
- Provide quality assurances
- Use sustainable methods
We will continue to develop our programs and services with a focus on providing consumers with naturally great tasting corn fed beef. Our intent with this website is to answer your questions and provide Ontario consumers with information about our products.
