NMSU Certified Calf Program
Value added programs are marketing tools which allow cattle producers to bring more dollars to their bottom line. At the basic level, value added programs assure buyers the calves received some type of vaccination/health protocol.
In an effort to promote additional marketing options for New Mexico Cattle producers, NMSU is now offering two calf certification programs, ACES High and ACES High +.
