The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is seeking public comments on revising the United States Standards for Grades of Carcass Beef.
USDA is requesting comments on the beef yield grade standard and carcass maturity as well as other topics. The current standards do not adequately reflect the genetic and production changes that have taken place in the cattle population since 1965 when a cutability or yield grade standard was first adopted.
Comments are accepted until November 13, 2014.
