On-Farm Poultry Slaughter Guidelines

The Cornell Small Farms Program announces a new On-Farm Poultry Slaughter Guide. Designed to complement a hands-on training in how to properly kill and prepare a poultry carcass for sale, this guide focuses on food safety and best management practices for farmers processing less than the 1,000 birds per year:

On-Farm Poultry Slaughter Guidelines

This 28-page guide contains sections on the 1000-bird limit exemption, where you can legally sell your birds under this exemption, labeling requirements, sanitary operating procedures and more. It includes several appendices, such as a sample flock record log and a questionnaire that your insurance company may use to assess your knowledge of safe poultry processing practices.
