Think twice about livestock birthing areas at fairs
CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) has animal welfare concerns with livestock birthing areas at agricultural fairs. There is a strong possibility that by transporting pregnant livestock or newly born animals to and from your fair for the purpose of an educational birthing exhibit, the owners, transporters and event organizers will be in contravention of federal humane transport regulations and could be penalized or prosecuted. Federal humane transport regulations prevent transporting a pregnant female during the last 10% of gestation, or within 48 hours after giving birth. For details contact firstname.lastname@example.org
