About the Red Tractor Scheme

Many farmers have both cattle and sheep on their farms and the Red Tractor scheme covers quality beef and lamb production as well as a range of other agricultural produce. The assurance standards encompass food safety, animal welfare, environmental protection and traceability from farms to pack. The welfare needs of sheep and cattle must not be compromised at any stage of their lives including transporting them in safe, suitable vehicles and farmers must ensure that their farming practices do not damage the environment. Animals need to be identifiable and traceable back to their farms of origin, and the beef and lamb produced meets standards of hygiene so that it is free from contamination and safe to eat. - See more at Red tractor logo on packaging
