Farmers, veterinarieans and livestock haulers are encouraged to attend this informational session by the Ohio Department of Agriculture which will provide an overview of the state’s new livestock care standards.
The meeting is open to the public and will feature a presentation on the new livestock care standards as well as an opportunity to ask Ohio Department of Agriculture staff questions about the new rules.
Ohio’s livestock care standards affect all persons raising or caring for one or more head of livestock raised for human food or fiber, and anyone raising or caring for equine animals in the state. Rules affecting the care of dairy, beef, swine, turkeys, broilers, sheep, goats, alpacas, llamas and horses have been approved by the Ohio General Assembly’s Join Committee on Agency Rule Review and will go into effect later this year.
