On Farm Poultry Processing 3 hour workshop

  • Monday, July 27, 2020, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

This 3 hour workshop will provide the required training to meet the needs for small-scale poultry producers wanting to process under the NYS 1000 bird exemption. The course will also benefit individuals that just want to process birds safely for their own family consumption. 

We will cover the processing of birds and demonstration of proper technique for dressing poultry along with a review of requirements for selling poultry under 1000 bird exemption in New York State. Workshop participants will learn to recognize diseases of public health concern, take basic biosecurity measures, write and implement basic Standard Sanitary Operating Procedures, develop Good Manufacturing Practices and an understanding of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point plans, along with properly dispose of offal and management of waste water. 

There is a $25 fee per farm, pre-registration is required and space is limited to allow for interaction and engagement of students. To pre-register contact Lynn Bliven (585) 268 7644 ext. 18 or email lao3@cornell.edu. Once registered you will receive the Zoom link and handout materials for the training. Two people per farm may complete the training and receive a Certificate of Completion. At least one should be the primary insurance policyholder for those seeking insurance coverage.

This is the same training as the 2 series course offered July 21st & 28th.
