NFAAC Code of Practice for Care and Handling of Mink now available

The new Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Farmed Mink is now available. The 2013 edition, developed by the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) replaces the 1988 version, developed and published by Agriculture Canada.

These Codes of Practice are national developed guidelines for the care and handling of farm animals. They serve as our national understanding of animal care requirements and recommended practices. Codes promote sound management and welfare practices for housing, care, transportation and other animal husbandry practices. ( NFAAC, 2013)
Ranchers are encouraged to familiarize themselves and their employees with the updated codes. For more information, contact:
