The Canadian Cattlemen's Association is encouraging beef producers to provide input into the redevelopment of the beef cattle Code of Practice by participating in a new online survey on routine management practices, such as animal identification (branding), dehorning, and castration.
The CCA says the survey is confidential and takes about 10 minutes. Producers can leave their email address to receive updates.
The redevelopment of the beef cattle Code is part of a National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) multi-year project to renew several of the Codes of Practice for the care and handling of farm animals.
“Now over half-way through its mandate, the beef code committee is seeking input on several key animal management practices in order to create guidelines that are both relevant and practical,” the CCA's Ryder Lee said in a release. “This is an important part of the process, have your say — complete the survey.”
