• The ultimate Quality - Rangers Valley

OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY

The quality and safety of our beef is our highest priority. Rangers Valley leads the Australian industry in implementing standards on safety and quality assurance throughout our production supply chain.

Traceability

For the ultimate safety assurance, Rangers Valley operates a DNA traceability system that allows our products to be traced back from the finished product to the original cattle breeder. We also comply with the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS), Australia’s system for identification and traceability of livestock.

Supply Chain

Cattle are purchased from selected suppliers who are checked against the AQIS database to ensure they have no history of chemical residues. For each cattle consignment, suppliers must provide written declarations regarding any chemical or antibiotic usage, any supplementary feed, and a statement guaranteeing no growth hormones have been used.

All feed is tested before entering the Rangers Valley feedlot to ensure it is free from any contaminants. All feed suppliers must provide written declarations regarding any chemicals that may have been used on the crop either in the field or in storage.

Feedlot

Rangers Valley feedlot operations are accredited under the National Feedlot Accreditation Scheme (NFAS) which is a third party audited quality assurance
program covering all aspects of product integrity, care of the environment and animal welfare.

Going slow makes the difference

Rangers Valley employs a proven feeding program. Our cattle are fed slowly, for longer periods of time, with specialised vegetarian grain rations. This ensures a natural growth rate, similar to that of a pasture fed animal and results in maximising marbling, consistency, flavour and melt-in-the-mouth tenderness.

Handling Healthy Cattle

Rangers Valley prides itself on the natural health and safety of its cattle. All staff are fully trained in animal husbandry, to not only ensure the humane treatment of our cattle, but to also employ strict quarantine measures so our stock remain disease-free.

They are fed scientifically designed rations that provide all the protein, energy, vitamins and minerals needed for growth and development. This minimises the risk of cattle becoming susceptible to disease.

Processing

Rangers Valley cattle are processed under the supervision of the dedicated Rangers Valley production team. The processing plant operates under the strict supervision of the Australian Quarantine Inspection Service (AQIS) ensuring the hygiene, safety and certification of the plant is meeting Australian standards.

Meat Standards Australia

Rangers Valley is accredited and utilises Meat Standards Australia (MSA) technology and systems throughout the Rangers Valley supply chain to further enhance the integrity of our product. MSA graded product is available upon request.
