LPA

IMG_3820Livestock Production Assurance

Level 1 LPA (food safety) is a simple on-farm food safety program asking you to be able to ‘back up’ the claims you make on the NVD Waybill.

The LPA food safety standard consists of one module, Food Safety Management, made up of five elements:

  1. Property risk assessment
  2. Safe and responsible animal treatments
  3. Stock foods, fodder crops, grain and pasture treatments
  4. Preparation for dispatch of livestock
  5. Livestock transactions and movements

For each of the elements, there is a ‘food safety outcome’. The food safety outcomes are aimed at ensuring meat from your livestock is fit for human consumption.

To maintain LPA accreditation, you must comply with all elements. These elements relate to what you declare and sign off on when completing the LPA NVD/Waybill Edition 1. You are also part of a random audit pool.

LPA Quality Assurance

The LPA on-farm quality assurance (QA) program, incorporating the Cattlecare and Flockcare programs, consists of three modules: Food Safety Management (LPA Level 1), Systems Management and Livestock Management.

Note: Livestock producers have to be fully accredited in LPA Level 1 (or Food Safety Management) to participate in LPA QA.

Livestock producers can register for LPA QA and purchase a hardcopy of the LPA QA manual by phoning the MLA hotline on 1800 675 717.

Livestock producers can also register for free by using the LPA QA online tool. LPA QA online will allow producers to easily manage the LPA QA process and will also help in preparing for an LPA audit. The only cost will be payment for an annual audit, of which prices will vary.

Systems Management and Livestock Management, as with Food Safety Management, are each made of five elements:

Systems Management 

  • Training
  • Internal auditing and document control
  • Quality Records
  • Document Control
  • Chemical Inventory

Livestock Management

  • Livestock Husbandry and preparation
  • Livestock handling facilities
  • Livestock Transport
  • Animal Welfare
  • Accredited Livestock

Rachel Angus from Guyra has had another fantastic result at the Wingham Beef Week.
The steer was placed 2nd on the hook in the light domestic class, missing out on first place by under a point.
The steer a half-brother to the steer that took out last year’s Champion Lightweight was exhibited by RBE Enterprises.
The Shorthorn steer received an overall carcass score of 86.9, with an MSA Marble Score of 320.
The other highlight for this steer was selling at auction for $7.80/kg which was the top price for the class.
Congratulations to the Angus Family & RBE Enterprises on a fantastic result.
