The USDA has launched a pilot program to increase accessibility and affordability of carcass quality grading for small and mid-sized beef processors. 

Patrick Robinette of North Carolina, chairman of the independent beef processing committee for the U.S. Cattlemen’s Association, says this brings quality grading for beef into the modern era.  “Through the program, we’ll be able to use cloud and photo technology and apply it to being able to put a grade on a label for beef,” he says.
