Cow/Calf Programs Overview
The Cow/Calf Operations Programs Overview document will give a brief description of SAV, China Export Verification, NHTC, and Verified Natural Beef requirements.
Source & Age Enrollment Application
The Source and Age Verification application is only for producers enrolling an individual calving group. This is a phone audit process, which does not require an onsite audit.
This application is the first step in the verification process for cow/calf ranches wanting to enroll in SAV, Non-Hormone Treated Cattle (NHTC), Verified Natural Beef (VNB), CARE or Verified Grassfed programs.
Non-Hormone Treated Cattle (NHTC) Feed Letter
Producers enrolled in the NHTC and Verified Natural programs must obtain a signed feed letter of guarantee from the manufacturer of all commercial feed products being used on their operation.
Shipping Program Checklist
Shipping cattle soon? Use this checklist to help you remember what's required for your program cattle.
Producers enrolled in SAV, NHTC, VNB, CARE programs must have an updated ranch manual on hand for your onsite verification.
Instead of completing a separate document when you ship your approved cattle from the ranch, now you can write the shipping information directly on the Ranch Shipping Certificate, which is issued when your calving group is approved.
Order EID tags
Use this Tag Order form for ordering EID tags of any kind for program or non-program cattle. You may submit this to your CVS, or call our office directly to order.
Tag Inventory Report
The tag inventory report is to be completed by all customers who have purchased EID tags in order to confirm how many tags were used, and the inventory of leftover tags.
EID Tagging Instructions
An overview of the EID tag and instructions on how to appropriately apply it to cattle can be found here.
Calving Group Enrollment Form
The Calving Group Enrollment form can be used to get a calf crop approved prior to the next scheduled onsite audit.
