The ACGC News is a short information sheet emailed to chicken growers who are members of State Farming Organisations, Processor Grower Goups, and Associate members. It features business information, tracks diseases, provides information on grants and opportunities, and environmental scanning. If you are not a member of the above groups and wish to receive the newsletter, contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that newsletters after 2022 are not posted on the site.
Many of Australia’s free range chicken meat farms are accredited by FREPA, a not-for-profit, member-based organisation established in 1993, and focused on independent accreditation of animal welfare, traceability and production standards of free range eggs and poultry. To be accredited, members must demonstrate an understanding of land care, environmental, biosecurity and animal welfare issues, and animal diseases.
