USDA Raising Claims Guidelines

The link above is for the new, guide lines for labeling how animals were raised.
If you are marketing your animals or products from them, this might be of interest to you.

here is the intro so you can determine if you need to read or save a copy of this Labeling Guideline.

The purpose of this compliance guideline is to outline the documentation that establishments are required to submit in support of label applications for products that bear animal raising claims. The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is the Agency in USDA with the responsibility for ensuring that the labeling of meat and poultry products is truthful and not misleading. Labeling bearing claims referring to the way that the source animal for a meat or poultry product was raised need to be evaluated and approved by FSIS prior to use.
For the past 25 years, FSIS has evaluated animal raising claims by considering information on animal raising practices submitted by companies as part of their label approval requests. The Agency has approved such claims if the animal raising information submitted with the label application supported the claim being made and the claim is truthful and not misleading.
FSIS developed this guideline to respond to numerous requests to the Labeling Program and Delivery Staff (LPDS) through phone calls, askFSIS questions, and other correspondence regarding the type of information needed to support the approval of labels bearing animal raising claims. This guideline is intended to facilitate the approval process for labels bearing animal raising claims.
