We are committed to ensuring animals in Irsik & Doll facilities are cared for humanely. A comprehensive animal handling program, overseen by veterinarians and conducted by feed yard staff, helps ensure cattle are as healthy and comfortable as possible.
Components of our Animal Welfare Policy:
Veterinarians guide our decisions on cattle care as well as aide in identifying and implementing improvements. Veterinarians collaborate with nutritionists and the feed yard management team on nutrition plans for optimal digestion at various growth stages. They advise and oversee disease-control efforts, diagnose illness, and direct routine procedures.
Cattle Health and Biosecurity:
At Irsik & Doll, we know healthy cattle lead to safe beef. We enforce biosecurity protocols to inhibit the spread of disease and protect our food supply.
We maintain an animal handling program designed to keep our employees safe and the cattle in our care healthy and comfortable. We train our team to understand animal care and enforce a no-tolerance animal mistreatment policy.
Animal Welfare Training:
Training Irsik & Doll employees instills the skills and mindset necessary to conduct safe and humane practices. Our goal is to keep our team safe as they strive to provide the best care to animals housed in our facilities.
