Getting a handle on the herd

Megan and Andrew, recently MSA registered beef producers, are reviewing the MSA report on their first supply of livestock. They didn’t get the grading result for their cattle that they expected, and noticed some of the carcases had pH levels above 5.70. They make a call to the processor to find out why.

During her conversation with Shane, they report the actions that took place leading up to transporting their cattle.

Can you identify what may have led to Megan and Andrew’s low compliance rates?
