Northern Great Plains Sustainable Beef Pilot
The Northern Great Plains (NGP) Sustainable Beef Pilot is a collaborative engagement process between all sectors of the beef supply chain to test the U.S. Beef Industry Sustainability Framework and its tools and resources in a way that is viable and practical for cow-calf producers in the NGP. While the pilot will initially involve a small group of stakeholders with traceability back to a select group of ranchers in the NGP, it aims to ensure scalability and sustainable practices, particularly at the ranch-level in the NGP, are recognized and a foundation for further improvement is provided.
