SD Ag Official Says Certified Beef Program Will Last

SD Ag Official Says Certified Beef Program Will Last

The recent Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing of Northern Beef Packers does not mean the end of the South Dakota Certified Beef program. That’s according to State Ag Department Certified Beef program manager Sarah Caslin.

Caslin says the two processors are located in East river South Dakota and include Jorgensen Beef in Waubay and Hudson Beef in Hudson.  She says while the Northern Beef bankruptcy was a setback, there’s still hope in that because it’s a chapter 11 filing they can still re organize. She’s hoping that will happen or some other company will come in as a processor.

Caslin says those producers interested in the certified beef enrolled program or those processors interested in the certified beef program should contact the State Department of Agriculture and go through the application process which is easy to complete.
