Grower License Applications
Livestock Dealer License
Notice is given to assist in the maintenance of public health and food safety by tracking the whereabouts and origin of beef cattle. The Nova Scotia Cattle Producers hereby give notice on May 24, 2011 in accordance with Sections 3 and 4 of the NSCP Regulations which states:
“A person must not raise, buy, sell or process beef cattle in the regulated area without a licence of a type that authorizes them to do so.”
This means all growers, buyers and processors must register annually with NSCP in accordance with the Regulations. Licenses expire on December 31 and must be renewed in order to conduct business as a grower, dealer or processor in Nova Scotia. An NSCP inspector may inspect the books, records premises and transport vehicles of a producer or purchaser at any time determined by the Commodity Board.
All growers, dealers and processors must renew their license annually.
