CPH Sales

2017-2018 CPH Sale Schedule


Japan has announced that they will begin to accept meat from cattle up to 30 months of age beginning on February 1, 2013. As you know, the 20 month age limit for importation of meat to Japan has driven the demand for Source and Age Verified (PVP) cattle since the BSE case back in 2003. This change in import policy will effectively remove the demand for cattle in this program in our opinion.

As a result of this Blue Grass will discontinue requiring Source and Age Verification as a requirement for the CPH 45 program effective immediately.

We will continue to utilize the electronic ear tags (EID) through our March sale in Lexington and will read those tags. After the March sale our intention is to go back to the simple visual panel tag.

Blue Grass will continue to monitor the situation for developments that could revive demand for Source and Age Verified cattle and will respond accordingly. As well we are looking into new value added opportunities that could possibly replace this program. If you are a CPH 45 customer, expect to get a survey in the mail asking about your interest in varying value added attributes for future CPH 45 sales.
