Livestock Preparation

  • All livestock should be removed from feed 4 hours prior to trucking. All yards at Prime Range have water available. This will help ensure animals do not lose carcass weight.
  • Stock yards need to be well maintained to limit the risk of injury to the animals and to prevent contamination of the fleece due to dust, mud and excess water.
  • The welfare of the animal is important, careful handling ensures the animals are under the least amount of stress possible, resulting in less chance of injury and lower pH which delivers better quality product.
