Pig code and poultry

The public comment period for the draft Pig Code recently ended.  This public comment mechanism is an important part of the process, allowing for private citizens the opportunity to provide feedback on the proposed standards of care for Canadian pigs.

Later this year our Code representatives will begin the process of developing standards of care for poultry (meat chicken and turkey) as well as for laying hens.

For more information on the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) process of negotiating and setting codes of practice, visit:

Your support allows us to stay at the table ensuring the welfare of our farm animals.
