Beef Cattle Code of Practice renewal takes next step

Calgary, AB – The Beef Cattle Code of Practice will be updated through the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) code development process, in partnership with the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA).

The CCA views the NFACC code development process as the best option to achieving an outcome-based, science-based Beef Code of Practice supported by all stakeholders. Codes of Practice are national guidelines for the care and handling of farm animals.

“The National Farm Animal Care Council process does a good job of bringing the scientific outlook and other stakeholders to the table,” said CCA Animal Care Committee chair Dave Solverson.
