To all the poultry folks out there.....I'm this morning over a CAR that we felt was unwarranted
How do you manage the animal welfare portion i.e. Chapter 12. It reads as if we need to train each employee as a vet, which is ludicrous and goes on to define "compromised" as "An animal with reduced capacity to withstand transportation but where transportation with special provisions is not likely to lead to suffering, injury or death."
BUT they keep using the word compromised to define birds state while alive. It's exhausting trying to match CFIA and the legal mess they have made in the regulations......
We currently perform 3! ante mortems (2 of ours, 1 CFIA inspector), have approved methods for humane euthanization, correct procedures for DOA, as well as 4/day monitoring of live hang employees and the birds
I refuse to roll over and give in......enough is enough
Any thoughts from meat folks in general and poultry specifically would be appreciated
I should note: we are NOT chicken or turkey
