Fall 2017 CPE Update to Producers

“We would like to take this opportunity to update you on proposed changes to the Canadian Quality Assurance (CQA – on farm food safety) and Animal Care Assessment (ACA) components of Canadian Pork Excellence. Once complete, the revised programs will be referred to as “PigSAFE” (formerly CQA) and “PigCARE” (formerly ACA).

Updates to the CQA and ACA programs have focused on:
o a single producer manual integrating the food safety and animal care programs;
o templates to aid in drafting Standard Operating Procedures (SOP);
o easier-to-use, web-based access to validation reports;
o inclusion of the 2014 Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Pigs in PigCARE; and
o new resources to aid in barn staff training.”
