Oct. 10, 2012, Armstrong, BC - A local poultry farmer would like the provincial government to allow farmers to slaughter their own animals, in order to better secure against biosecurity threats.

Accoding to an article by the CBC, Andrea Gunner (an agricultural economist and poultry producer), believes that large-scale farms are the problem.

"As line processing speeds increase, the food quality itself decreases," she said. "And there are tons of studies, throughout the world, that show that."

Gunner adds that small-scale procesing provides easier ways to catch contamination.
