How you can help beef cattle

You can do your bit to help ensure beef cattle have a good quality of life.

Look out for the RSPCA Assured logo

If you eat beef and you're concerned about welfare, look out for products carrying the RSPCA Assured logo (previously Freedom Food). If you can't find RSPCA Assured labelled beef, look for beef produced from animals reared in extensive systems, such as suckler herd systems.

The RSPCA Assured food labelling scheme aims to ensure animals are reared, handled, transported and slaughtered according to strict RSPCA welfare standards that we develop and monitor. Find out more about where to buy RSPCA Assured labelled food.

If more consumers insist on higher welfare products, more supermarkets will want to stock them, which will encourage more farmers to improve their farming practices and ultimately more farm animals will benefit.
