AgWe is launching a Grass-Fed Verification. In this article we explain its significance, how it works, and the remarkable benefits it brings to beef producers. We also showcase how stable isotope analysis plays a pivotal role in this game-changing product thanks to our partnership with ISOfoodtrace.
Hey there, farmers, foodies and agriculture enthusiasts! We're excited to share some game-changing news with you today. AgWe is proud to announce our groundbreaking new product: the AgWe Grass-Fed Verification. We’d like to dive into what this innovative offering is all about, how it works, and the incredible benefits it brings to the table for farmers and consumers.
AgWe's Grass-Fed Verification is a cutting-edge solution that leverages stable isotope analysis, made possible through our partnership with ISOfoodtrace. This revolutionary technology allows us to accurately determine whether the cattle have been grass-fed or grain-fed, providing you with a reliable and objective way to verify the farm's claim of producing premium grass-fed beef.
Our verification process is both scientific and straight forward. By taking samples from any part of the cattle, we analyze the ratios of carbon and nitrogen isotopes present in the beef. These ratios serve as a fingerprint, distinguishing between grass-fed and grain-fed diets. For instance, C3 plants, which include most grasses, display a lighter C isotopic composition, while C4 plants, including certain grasses and grains, exhibit a heavier C isotopic signature. Consequently, grass-fed beef typically exhibits lower 13C and 15N values compared to grain-fed beef. The result? An independently verified status of Grass Fed for your beef.
By moving away from the traditional on farm verification and using this scientific approach we have some unlocked some incredible benefits that we will bring to farms around Australia:
We couldn't have achieved this groundbreaking solution without the expertise and collaboration of ISOfoodtrace. Their stable isotope analysis technology has opened new doors in beef verification, revolutionizing the way we ensure the quality and authenticity of your beef.
We are really excited to launch our new Grass-Fed Verification and believe this is a game-changer for beef producers. It's a scientific, convenient, and reliable way to help farmers verify their claims of Grass Fed beef.
