New Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Beef Cattle released

The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) and the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) are pleased to announce the release of the new Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Beef Cattle. The Code is available electronically at www.nfacc.ca/codes-of-practice/beef-cattle.

“Canadian cattle producers care for their cattle every day”, says Ryder Lee, Manager of Federal and Provincial Relations, Canadian Cattlemen’s Association. “What that care entails is not often fully understood by people unfamiliar with livestock production and the practices of the industry in general. The updated Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Beef Cattle will give people a better understanding of all that’s involved in raising beef cattle. And they can feel good knowing that the Code takes into account science-informed practices that are practical for producers to use and meet the public’s expectations for animal care.”
