As the year moves ahead, all of the farm animal code groups have made great strides towards their final codes. New national Codes of Practice for the welfare of horses, pigs, cattle and sheep are now entering the final stages of negotiation. Public comment periods will be held in fall of 2012 and early 2013, providing an opportunity to the public to express their expectations for Canada to meet higher standards.
If you are interested in being involved in that process, please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org.
Convened by the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC), the Codes set out minimum requirements for treatment of all farm animals in Canada and serve as reference documents for animal cruelty law. The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies serves as the voice of the Canadian humane movement at the table.
