Farmers Gilbert and Angie are enrolled in a feeding program for their cattle that is unique to Ontario. The Ontario Corn Fed Beef Program was launched in 2001. The product's easily recognized label shows consumers that the beef is a premium product and is locally raised.
The type of feed that cattle eat plays a significant role in determining how flavourful the meat is. In Ontario, corn is a plentiful and high quality crop. For this reason, cattle on the Ontario Corn Fed Beef Program eat a high percentage of corn within their regular diets. This results in a tender, tasty beef product unique to Ontario.
