Tell us your top-of-mind thoughts on goat welfare.
The Canadian National Goat Federation has initiated a revision to the 2003 goat Code of Practice using the process established by the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) (1) (2). Once completed, the Code will reflect required and recommended practices for on-farm care of goats.

An important preliminary step in this process is to invite all interested individuals to submit their most pressing concerns about the welfare of goats. This input will help to inform the development of the Code.

To ensure that the Code Development Committee is able to consider input in a timely manner, the survey will remain open until May 2, 2019.

Please note: The survey is designed to gain insights on individuals’ own top-of-mind thoughts about goat welfare. As a result, NFACC may exclude submissions that are inconsistent with the spirit or intent of this effort.

(1) The Canadian National Goat Federation provides a united voice on behalf of all goat producers dealing with national issues concerning the goat industry.
(2) NFACC is a collaborative partnership serving as the national lead for farm animal care and welfare in Canada ( All Codes of Practice, as well as more information about the Code process, are available on NFACC’s website.
