Late Digital Form Submission Penalties Effective A-138

In A-131, Chicken Farmers of Ontario (CFO) introduced the CFO Connects online portal, a web interface for farmer-members to conduct chicken industry business transactions. To assist with the transition, CFO suspended all late Form 3 and 6 submission penalties to provide farmer-members adequate time to adjust to the new digital format.
 
During the activation phase, two advisory notices were issued notifying farmer-members when full enforcement for late digital forms would commence.
 
This purpose of this notice is to remind you that effective A-138, all late digital Form 3 and 6 submissions will be penalized 100 kilograms per form.
 
The following table outlines the deadlines for digital form submission:

Transaction Form Reference Deadline Requirement
Flock Placement Form 3
 
Must be submitted a maximum of 8 days following placement
Vaccines and Medications Form 3
 
Must be submitted a minimum of 4 days prior to processing
Marketing Information
Catching and Loading Form 6 Must be submitted prior to load-out
 
Your processor may have additional timelines specific to their operation. It is important that farmer-members work with their processor to meet any additional processor-specific timelines.

It is the responsibility of CFO farmer-members to ensure that they comply with all CFO regulations and policies which can be accessed by CLICKING HERE.
