Bridport, March 11, 2016

Please join the Vermont Beef Producers Association and the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets on Friday, March 11, 2016 at 10AM at The Bridport Town Hall for a discussion of the Recommended Agricultural Practices (RAPs) for beef management in Vermont. 

Ryan Patch and Laura DiPietro from The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets will be leading the discussion. 
Participants will be encouraged to review relevant sections of the RAPs for beef management practices and provide feedback as to whether the changes from the 1st draft to the 2nd draft are workable for beef farms in Vermont. 

Some major areas for consideration include: 
1.       Livestock Exclusion Standards
2.       Manure Stacking Standards
3.       SFO Certification Thresholds and Certification Requirements
