The Mass Depopulation Committee met on August 1st. It was determined that the Board will work to develop veterinarian approved Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for large MAC carts, small MAC carts, sea container gassing, and whole barn gassing. The work will occur this fall and the SOPs should be available to Alberta egg farmers later this year or early next. We are expecting revised AVMA euthanasia guidelines to be released in the fall and the newly developed/revised SOPs will ensure that farmers are able to meet the standards.
