Organic Livestock Documentation Forms

  1. 1. By George Kuepper, NCAT Agriculture Specialist, Lisa Cone, Waterfall Hollow Farm, Berryville, AR, and Joyce Ford, Organic Independents, Winona, MN August 2003 ORGANIC LIVESTOCK DOCUMENTATION FORMS The Purpose and Use of These Forms In order to become certified organic, livestock producers must demonstrate to an accredited certi- fier that their operation complies with National Organic Program regulations. This process is begun by completing an Organic System Plan (OSP)—normally part of the application for certification. The OSP illustrates to the certifier how the producer plans to comply with the regulations by detail- ing the practices, the inputs, and the monitoring procedures that will be used. The Organic System Plan is backed up by on-site inspection to ensure that the producer is, in fact, farming or ranching in the manner outlined in his or her OSP. It is the inspector’s responsibility to look for documentation and indicators that substantiate the producer’s claim to or- ganic status, as well as look for any vio- lations. The forms in this package are pro- vided as tools that livestock producers can use for documenting practices, in- puts, and activities that demonstrate compliance with regulations or that as- sist in other aspects of farm record keep- ing. The forms can be kept anywhere they make recording easy, such as the truck, milk house, or machinery shed. Please note that these are not required forms! Organic livestock producers have more than enough mandatory paperwork to keep them occupied. These forms are merely intended to give you something convenient and organized to record routine things that may be important to document. Use only those forms that suit your operation and recycle the rest. Acknowledgements These documentation forms were developed by the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) with funds provided by the USDA/National Organic Program (NOP) and the USDA/ CSREES Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) Program. Distribution is provided by NCAT’s ATTRA Project, the National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service. ©2003 USDA-NRCS
