Ontario Corn Fed Beef Grading Specifications

Roast-ImageOnly beef receiving the Canada AA quality grade or higher can qualify as Ontario Corn Fed Beef Program. OCFB is also available as AAA Ontario Corn Fed Beef or as Certified AAA Platinum Ontario Corn Fed Beef which requires the upper two-thirds of the AAA marbling range.

An Ontario Corn Fed Beef carcass may be graded only after it has been inspected and received the meat inspection stamp, indicating that the beef satisfies all food safety requirements. Quality and yield grades can only be assigned to carcasses by a certified Canadian Beef Grading Agency (CBGA) grader. Each grader must successfully complete a comprehensive training program.
