Cedar Valley Farms License Suspension
The BC Milk Marketing Board has received information from the BC SPCA regarding violations of the Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Dairy Cattle on a dairy farm in British Columbia. Based on the information provided by the BC SPCA, and a subsequent inspection of the farm, the BC Milk Marketing Board (BC Milk) has immediately suspended the dairy license for Cedar Valley Farms pending further investigation. The BC Milk Marketing Board is working with the BC Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries to ensure oversight of the care of the animals on this farm. The Board is conducting a thorough investigation and seeks all information in this matter.
Adherence to the Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Dairy Cattle is mandatory for all dairy farms in BC. We cannot overstate how important it is that all farms be held to a high standard for the handling of the animals in their care.
