What is poultry farm regulation?
Poultry farm regulation is the law that governs the running your poultry farm.
You are legally required to keep these regulations.
Farms, like yours, are monitored and controlled by the local and national government.
Why is poultry farm regulation important?
Operating within the law will keep your poultry farm legitimate.
Your business runs the risk of being fined or shut down if you break these laws.
So, avoid these pitfalls by knowing what is required – well in advance.
Know your authority
Adding your measure of contribution to the local or regional economy is entering into a partnership.
There are already existing stakeholders at work. And most of all the authorities which set the regulatory framework for governing all activity therein.
It is this authority which comes first in all such decision-making as you are considering with your poultry farm.
They allocate permission for start-up, trade licenses and building development.
Without them, you are unable to lay an egg or sell a bird.
Get to know them well.
Identify who is your most relevant port of call within the organisation and make an introduction early on.
(Do this BEFORE you need their help.)
Learn every relevant law
Familiarise yourself with every law and regulatory practice which affects the start-up of your poultry farm.
There will most probably be a knowledge base or library of documentation available, produced by your local or regional authorities.
Study every detail and gather together all loose ends.
Align yourself and your business for meeting every obligation.
Always make sure you have the most up-to-date version of any particular document or legal statute.
That way you know that you are clear of any failings.
If you have performed the 1st task of getting to know your authorities well,
Then keeping up to date will simply follow.
Join association mailing lists
Your country, region and locality are sure to have official (and not-so official) poultry farming associations.
It’s worth joining them.
Get on the mailing list and receive their updates.
Even if you would prefer a more discrete manner amongst peers,
There’s no harm in getting from them timely mailshots of what topical, new and even important for the poultry trade in your area.
