On-Farm Welfare Producer Education Package

Ontario Goat (OG) is helping both new and experienced goat producers understand and improve the welfare of their herd to ensure animal wellbeing, profitability, and public trust for the sector through practical and innovative new resources. Resources cover key topics such as preventing and detecting disease in kids, assessing herd welfare, a new body condition scoring system, and updated recommendations for on-farm euthanasia. These resources are designed to ensure producers are fully equipped to maintain and improve on-farm animal welfare by bringing together information from a variety of sources and industry experts into easy to reference resources.

All members of Ontario Goat received this comprehensive resource package free in October 2017. A complete package of all sixteen resources can be purchased by non-members for $70 (includes shipping in Ontario and HST) by contacting the Ontario Goat office at 519-824-2942 or info@livestockalliance.ca.
