Farm Animal Codes--Update December 2011

The group of industry codes currently being revised by the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) include:

  • Pigs:  scientific reports on industry best practices and research have been submitted to the code committee for review and negotiation.
  • Beef: scientific reports on industry best practices and research have been submitted to the code committee for review and negotiation.
  • Horses:  scientific reports on industry best practices and research have been submitted to the code committee for review and negotiation.  In addition the horse owner community is being surveyed to determine their top concerns with respect to humane practices specific to horse care.
  • Mink and Fox:  scientific reports on industry best practices and research have been submitted to the code committee for review and negotiation.
  • Sheep:  this specific code was started later than the others and is approximately 25% completed.

In addition to the current group of codes, the poultry industry has approached the NFACC to start the code process for meat poultry (broilers and turkey), laying hens and egg producers.  This group of codes should start in 2012/2013.
