Sheep & Goats PARTICIPANTS Copa-Cogeca UECBV FVE represented by Frank O’Sullivan
FVE FCI = connect and manage food safety risks Private practitioners and CAs can be more active throughout the FCI FCI for FBOs method of adding value and integrate their farm suppliers FCI = full expression to the EU "prevention is better than cure"
UECBV FCI = unclear – Too general PH risks at other steps (e.g. transport - retail) Balance between FS/AH/AW & livestock production needed > impact the responsibility for cost attribution Copa-Cogeca Strengthening FCI (farm level > voluntary quality systems - preferred to HACCP systems at primary production) Consider slaughtering processes Dressing operations (if carried out by the same worker) > NO increased microbiological risks
Bovines CLITRAVI - UECBV - VION company Occupational Hazards not considered
- FCI > Optimising the flow and its content - FCI shall be linked to Herd Health Plans - Generalised bovine TBC > frequent condition for carcass condemnation -Some post mortem findings such as ketosis should be clarified -Environment protection policies consideration - Illicit sub. in bovine meat > almost half of all non compliances in meat samples from all species FVE could provide some data … UECBV To consider hazards originating before-after the abattoir
Farmed game Topics Weak points of Reg. 853/2004 Outcomes - FCI to strengthen AM inspection. - Better check of farm records regularly and in details - Animals kept outdoors >> to be checked even by cutting (TB in deer) What is the cost of veterinary examinations ? There may be the danger of reducing the costs by saving staff and time.
Solipeds Topics Production of solipeds and meat FCI Slaughter practices compared to other domestic ungulates Main post-mortem inspection findings Reasons for carcass condemnation Laboratory chemical/microbiological testing Outcomes FCI not duly filled in Injured animals excluded or sampled Mainly respiratory conditions Welfare issues prevalent
