Livestock relocation

Livestock relocation planning should consider the various elements involved and potential scenarios to help ensure producers are as prepared as possible for a range of emergencies that may require the relocation of their livestock.

Provincial support for livestock relocation

The B.C. government has developed a Livestock Relocation Factsheet to assist and support producers in being as prepared as possible during emergencies. Information about EMBC’s Livestock Relocation Policy can be found below:

Non-commercial farm business and pets

Provincial support for livestock relocation during emergencies has been developed to support commercial agricultural producers in the province, and is not intended to address non-commercial livestock or pets. If you are a non-farm business owner of livestock or pets you should ensure you have the appropriate plans in place to care for your animals during an emergency.  Further information and support may be available from your Local Authority or First Nation or the following resources:
