The BCRC Logo (herein referred to as “the Logo”) represents the Beef Cattle Research Council (BCRC), a division of the Canadian Cattle Association (CCA), that manages the research allocation of the Canadian Beef Cattle Check-Off. It is vital that the Logo be presented properly in order to accurately represent the BCRC and build positive recognition among Canadian beef cattle industry stakeholders.
These guidelines apply to all uses of the identity to ensure consistency across all media applications. The integrity of the brand identity must be respected to ensure readability and consistency.
Two versions of the BCRC Logo exist. The version with black text is typically used.
