USDA Inspection Report: 30 Nov 2011
Citation: Today at approxamately 8:05 A.M. I went into the livestock holding area to verify the Humane Handling regulatory requirements. The smaller of the two holding pens had three large beef in it, there was one empy bucket on the floor, and no other source of water available to these animals. This is a non compliance with CFR 313.2(e). I spoke with Mr. , Owner regarding the lack of water in the holding pen. Mr. told me that they had just come from the livestock holding pens, and they needed to put their boots on before providing the animals with water. I was accompanied by a plant employee who took immediate corrective action to provide all the animals with access to water.
313.2 (e) Animals shall have access to water in all holding pens and, if held longer than 24 hours, access to feed. There shall be sufficient room in the holding pen for animals held overnight to lie down.
