The Beef Marketing Group would like to congratulate Will Feed Inc. for receiving the “High Audit Score” and McClymont Feedyard for receiving the “Taking Care of Business” award out of 21 feedyards for the first round of Progressive Beef internal audits of 2014.

Recently, Ward Feed Yard was highlighted and Chris Burris was the featured guest of Dr. Dan Thomson on the cable network program “That’s My Farm”.

ILS launched a new Comprehensive Safety Program this week written exclusively for Feed Yards and Farming Operations. Safety First is a safety program supported by online training modules designed to bring the latest safety training instructions to all ILS employees. These training video modules are OSHA compliant and afford all location Managers the ability to train and verify their employee’s safety training participation. New employees can quickly be orientated via individual training until they catch up with their peers. Each course is 30 minutes long and coordinated to specific subjects being highlighted during monthly safety meetings. Safety First represents one of the many ways ILS is helping to build the work force of tomorrow by investing in the individual’s desire to expand their professional safety training awareness today.
