Egg Farmers of Alberta is pleased to announce that we will be launching an updated Pullet Animal Care Checklist in the last quarter of 2017. This checklist is an educational tool for Pullet Growers, designed to clearly demonstrate where your facility sits compared to the 2017 Code of Practice recommendations. Our Field Coordinators will be completing the checklists during their visits to your facility to complete Salmonella testing. Upon completion of the checklist, you will receive a copy for your reference, either by e-mail or a printed version.
Our goal is to have all pullet facilities assessed within the next 12 months. While we continue to support the development of a National Pullet Animal Care Program, this checklist helps to inform our farmers about the new Code of practice, and to clearly show where changes may need to be implemented to meet the Code Requirements.
