The Canadian Verified Sheep Program is a voluntary on-farm food safety program that was developed through a partnership between producers, industry and government personnel from across Canada. The Food Safety Chapter has been available since 1997. Animal Care and Biosecurity were added in March 2017. The CVSP can be used by any sheep or lamb producer to address potential food safety challenges, and to improve Animal Welfare and Biosecurity.
Funding for this project was provided by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
