USDA/GIPSA RIN: 0580-AA99 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: Weighing; Feed and Swine Contractors 
Abstract: GIPSA is amending four existing scales and weighing regulations issued under the Packers and Stockyards Act to ensure that payments by live poultry and swine production contract growers are based on accurate weighing of both inputs and outputs. We propose to amend a regulation on scale tickets to reduce redundant wording and clarify weighing procedures. We propose to amend a regulation on reweighing to add swine contractors to the list of firms that must comply and to add feed to the list of items for which reweighing may be requested. We propose to amend two regulations on weighing livestock and poultry to add weighing processes for feed, to add a specific time limit for weighing poultry, and to add swine contractors to the list of firms that must comply with care and promptness requirements.
