Litigation Consulting and Expert Witness Services

Since 2003, Tim O'Byrne has provided litigation consulting and expert testimony in livestock-related cases in the United States and Canada.

Areas of Expertise:

  • Standard operating procedures and best management practices of North American beef production operations.
  • Beef industry production programs - Beef Quality Assurance (US), Quality Starts Here (Canada).
  • Livestock transportation.
  • Cattle handling and safety.
  • Horse handling and safety.
  • Livestock enclosures, fencing and handling systems.

Tim and his wife Christine launched Calico Beef Consulting near Calgary, Alberta in 1994. Initially the focus was on developing high school and college level extension courses dealing in livestock handling, handler safety, and compliance with agricultural law. Investigating the issues surrounding commercial livestock transportation appeared to be a natural next step. Tim assisted the Alberta Farm Animal Care Association, the Canadian Cattlemen's Association and Alberta Pork to design Canada's first deliverable training courses for livestock truckers, which were subsequently endorsed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Cargill Foods.

O’Byrne has written three books on the working ranch cowboy and has over 200 published articles on livestock production. He currently serves as Publisher and Editor of Working Ranch magazine, an industry publication targeting 55,000 ranchers across America.
