The Natural State Preconditioned Calf Program was created to highlight calves that
qualify for best management practices from weaning to marketing. Qualifying calves
display a GoGREEN Natural State Preconditioned Calf tag at the time of sale.
When preconditioning is done right, everybody wins. Buyers spend less time and money treating sick cattle, sale barns provide healthier
cattle and attract new business, and sellers often receive market incentives that
cover vaccine costs and shortterm retained ownership may advance market weights and
total sale dollars.
For more information, read Is Marketing Preconditioned Calves Right for Me? and watch the educational videos at the bottom of this page. Contact your local county agent to get started in the program!
GoGREEN calves can participate in these sales. Market specific preconditioning programs
and other recognized programs may qualify. Contact the auction market for more details.
To participate, the rancher must first be Beef Quality Assurance certified. Training
is available through local county Cooperative Extension Service office sessions this
summer or online at www.bqa.org. Once enrolled in the Go GREEN program, ranchers should
develop a calf management plan based on the criteria listed on the qualifying form
and must have documentation of health products purchased and dates administered. After
all the best management practices have been documented, tags can be picked up from
the county extension office. To participate in the Go GREEN program, there is a ranch
enrollment fee of $10 for 3 years and a $2 per calf qualifying fee.
