Chicken farmers across Canada are rolling out the latest changes to the Raised by a Canadian Farmer Animal Care Program.
The program will enhance environmental care and bird monitoring and handling as well as health-care practices, and emergency management and preparedness.
“Our Animal Care Program is a clear demonstration of farmers’ commitment to animal care,” said Benoît Fontaine, chair of Chicken Farmers of Canada. “Consumers want the best from their local farmers, and this program delivers.”
The program is mandatory, enforced, and third-party audited, the organization said.
