Herdsharing in Canada is based on the property rights of livestock co-owners:
- It is legal to own dairy animals.
- It is legal to co-own dairy animals with other people.
- It is legal to drink the milk from dairy animals that you own.
- Livestock owners own all products produced by their animals.
- Livestock owners can legally hire others to care for their dairy animals for them.
- Livestock owners can legally hire others to milk their dairy animals for them.
- Livestock owners can legally board animals off the property that they live on.
- People can legally transport their personal property from Point A to Point B.
Unfortunately, having these rights still does not prevent the Health Authorities from issuing cease-and-desist orders to any herdshare that they find out about in B.C. — and this is why B.C. law needs to change!
