Good records and systems are the foundation of the integrity system.
LPA accreditation is your pledge that the meat from your farm has been produced safely, ethically and meets biosecurity requirements – it means you stand by what you sell.
When you tick the box on your LPA NVD, you are guaranteeing your on-farm practices meet LPA requirements, and ultimately customer expectations. Your tick must be backed up by accurate farm records.
How do I keep good records for LPA?
There is no perfect formula to record keeping. The LPA record keeping templates are used by many producers and include all details that must be recorded.
Some producers find that keeping clear notes in a diary works well, others use customised hardcopy record books or computer spreadsheets. Others keep their records within their farm management software programs.
Regardless of the method, it is important that all relevant management activities are accurately and clearly recorded.
Your LPA records will be reviewed by an auditor, should you be required to particpate in an LPA audit, so its important to make sure they are accurate and up to date.
