What is a ruminant protein control programme?
A ruminant protein control programme (RPCP) is a plan that outlines how you stop ruminant protein getting into feed being produced for ruminants. Ruminants include cattle, buffaloes, sheep, goats and deer.
You must have an RPCP registered with the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) if you:
- render, use, or store ruminant protein, and
- produce ingredients or feed for ruminants.
Check if you need to register an RPCP with MPI if you:
- render ingredients for animal feed
- re-bag animal feed
- make, mill, or store animal feed.
