We want your lamb!

Ben Verrall from the Australian Lamb Company wants your antibiotic and ionophore-free lambs now.

Such is the demand from their US supplier for clean and sustainable meat, they’ve partnered with Ag Biotech – ProAgni and Animal Production Advisor, Sam Simmons from Delta Agribusiness, to identify producers keen to access this lucrative and growing market.

Currently antibiotic-free status is tracked through Vendor Declaration Forms.

“Our US customers look to us to deliver a clean product. Credibility, confidence and trust in the Aussie product is paramount to importers and their customers who demand transparency in the food chain.”

Looking to ensure a credible supply of antibiotic and ionophore-free meat, the Australian Lamb Company has invested in relationships with key industry players working towards the same sustainability goals for farming.

Ben Verrall has been keenly following the rise of a local ag biotech company – ProAgni, an Aussie company who has developed and launched the first antibiotic and ionophore-free (Bovatec-free & Rumensin-free) concentrate and finished feed in Australia. The Edison award winning products have been successfully, commercially and university trialled with remarkable results compared to a standard industry feedlot diet containing antibiotics and ionophores.

To meet the immediate and future demand of US contracts, the Australian Lamb Company recognised that working closely with industry-leading ag nutritionists would help quickly identify producers eager to embrace the growing demands of this export market. Delta Agribusiness, with one eye on future technologies and a historic footprint in sheep producing regions, fits that criteria.

“We want to work with future-focused organisations like Delta Agribusiness, Riverina Stockfeeds and ProAgni, who have existing relationships with farmers keen to deliver a more sustainable product. Demanding a cleaner product shouldn’t be at a cost to producers. The antibiotic and ionophore-free (Bovatec-free & Rumensin-free )concentrate, ProTect®, manufactured by Riverina Stockfeeds, is competitively priced and represents a simple switch out in their current feeding regime. ProAgni ProTect® ticks all the boxes.”
