[ISDA] New CLPP Corporate Sponsor Assists Farmers with Emergency Planning
Start Date: 4/9/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/9/2013
Entry Description
As part of its ongoing effort to promote overall farm and food safety, the Indiana State Department of Agriculture is pleased to announce Cherry Brother Designs as the newest corporate sponsor of the Certified Livestock Producer Program (CLPP).

The program promotes farming practices that go above and beyond in commitment to the environment, animal well-being, food safety, emergency planning, bio-security and being a good neighbor in their community. As a sponsor, Cherry Brother Designs is offering CLPP-recognized producers a 10 percent discount on the company’s Farm Source System, a pre-planning information system that was developed with safety first in mind for farmers and emergency personnel in case of an emergency need with the farm operation. The Shelbyville-based company’s system assists farmers in preparing a farm safety plan meant to prepare for potential emergencies.

“In a farm emergency, the ability for emergency response personnel to quickly understand the situation is vital to the protection of human life, animal well-being and natural resources,” said John Nagle, Livestock Production Program Manager for ISDA. “The discount being offered by Cherry Brother Designs in connection with the CLPP is a very practical way we can partner with the private sector to help promote even safer farming practices, which include being prepared for every eventuality.”

The CLPP was launched in 2008, and currently has 82 members from all across the state. It includes Hoosier livestock producers of all sizes farms and species of livestock.
