FANMEAT

To raise more awareness & update more farmers, can you please share with us some FAN Meat rules & requirements, and why is it critical for farmers to comply

Maybe if we can share one of the rules with which most producers struggle, it is record keeping. Record keeping includes treatment records, feed records, staff training records, movement records, and any records pertaining to on farm slaughter or loss of animals.  It is crucial to keep records in order to be able to verify claims made by both the producer and FAN Meat with regard to for instance keeping to withdrawal periods prior to slaughter, amount and type of feed given. Training of staff is very important in terms of animal welfare, which is a big component of FAN Meat. Staff must be trained to properly handle livestock and be able to identify animal welfare problems.

In regard to submission of animal health declarations, why is it crucial that farmers submit their animal health declarations?
