“We understand cull cows might have to be sent to us on a more urgent basis and will try to accommodate your requests to the best of our ability.”
Atlantic Beef Products requests that producers do not ship any cattle without calling in advance. They may not be able to accept your shipment without prior notice.
ABP also requests that producers contact them before delivering bulls so they can have a pen available.
