REMINDER TO ALL ONTARIO VEAL PRODUCERS:
The new and revised regulations that impact the enforcement of veal carcass weights came into effect on October 1st, 2009. Attached is a factsheet prepared by OMAFRA that was sent to all veal plants.
From this factsheet you can see the requirements for processors to have proper weighted carcasses if they want to market and sell the carcasses as veal. It is important that you ship proper weighted calves in order to ensure you maximize the marketplace and do not get “docked” for overweight carcasses.
Overweight carcasses become ungraded beef and will be priced accordingly by the buyer.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call the VFO office at 519-824-2942
