For years, producers have stressed the need for a program to receive individual cattle and carcass production and performance information to help them genetically improve their herds, to improve feeding and animal health practices, to reduce costs and improve end-market targeting. The Beef InfoXchange System (BIXS) was designed to do just that - and more.
Today, the evolution of BIXS continues as consumers are demanding more information about the quality of their beef, its history of care, and chain of custody. With more robust tracking through BIXS, Canadian beef can access lucrative international markets and compete more readily with other kinds of livestock both at home and abroad. As BIXS becomes more robust, Canada will be miles ahead of other beef producing countries in being able to track beef from farm or ranch to fork.
