As livestock producers, we have always had a focus on the health and well-being of our animals. But we were one of the first operations in the beef industry to provide innovations that went above and beyond the usual “best practices”, to provide ever-higher standards for animal health and well-being.
Individual Animal Management (Revoro™)
Our unique, proprietary software system, which we call Revoro™, allows us to track each animal individually, from the day it enters our backgrounding locations until it goes through the packing plant.
That gives us a complete life history of each animal at our fingertips when decisions about its health and wellbeing need to be made.

The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) is a nationally coordinated program that provides information to U.S. beef producers and consumers about how common sense husbandry techniques can be coupled with accepted scientific knowledge to raise cattle under optimum management and environmental conditions. For more than 10 years, every member of the Adams staff has been certified in BQA training (and that means everyone – from human resources and accounting to livestock marketing to animal husbandry).
We’re proud to participate in quality programs such as Progressive Beef and Tyson FarmCheck. Throughout the year, we have third-party audits and verification to ensure that all of our best practices, trainings and final product are at the highest level of quality for our consumers.
Throughout the year, as part of our continued focus on animal well-being, our veterinarians do the following:
- Meet with our employees regularly to hold trainings that cover topics on animal health, welfare and industry trends.
- Regularly visit Adams backgrounders to discuss best practices and to promote good health.
- Conduct frequent reviews of animal health protocols, to incorporate the latest internal and external data, and to ensure we have best practices in place for the cattle we’re feeding.
Mobile Veterinary Hospitals
This unit allows us to take veterinary services out to the feedlot, meaning we can usually treat the animal on the lot and return it to its home pen. That means less stress on the animal.
