Farmers across Canada raise a wide variety of livestock and poultry to produce meat, dairy, eggs, fibre, and many other products.
Caring for livestock properly, sustainably and humanely is a matter of doing the right thing. Content, healthy animals and birds are more productive, and lead to safer and better quality food.
Farmers are also continually working to improve farm animal care based on new and verified science, and are investing in farm animal behaviour to understand the needs of livestock and poultry animals.
