Feds support animal welfare

The federal agriculture department is giving three organizations about $3 million to update codes of practice for animal welfare.

The lion’s share goes to transporters via Animal Health Canada at Elora.

The Canadian Cattle Identification Agency in Calgary gets $52,140 to evaluate the use of ultra high frequency scanners to read cattle identification tags. It will improve response times to animal disease outbreaks.

The Canadian Poultry and Egg Processors Council gets $36,750 to update its animal welfare program for hatcheries.
