You are going to love this one:
We had our inspection visit from the south's regional head FSA inspecter as my business is in the process of changing from local EHO over to Food Standards Agency due to the fact that the business is going to be an Approved Game Handling Establishment & no longer exempt as a primary producer (in basic terms we dont shoot enough or our own deer & now buy in bodies to fill the gap).
Anyway whilst he was sprouting his bull, he asked how the deer were shot? to which I replied that 65% were cavity shot & about 35% neck shot.
He then stressed that everything entering the food chain should be head shot!
I was just astounded that he was not only sprouting **** but knew jack **** also!
How the hell can a guy with that job just still not know a single thing about deer managment & even the most basic issues in terms of best parctice & expect us to take on board 100% to the letter of what that want with respect to the inspections in future?
