     (e)  an exemption provided for under the Plan.  


Minimum price
12   The Board may by resolution

producer for chicken marketed, and

     (b)  determine different prices for different classes, varieties,
grades, sizes or kinds of chicken.


Base quota increases
13(1)  When the Board considers that general marketing conditions warrant a
permanent increase in base quota, that increase must be allocated by the
Board by auction in accordance with this section.

(2)  The Board must ensure that quota is allocated by auction to authorized
producers and to persons eligible to receive licences as authorized
producers based on the amount of quota allocation fee the authorized
producer or person offers and pays to the Board.

(3)  An authorized producer and any person who is eligible to receive a
licence as an authorized producer may participate in the auction.

(4)  Any person wishing to participate in the auction must provide evidence
to the Board, in the form specified by the Board, that satisfies the Board
as to the person's financial capability to pay the quota allocation fee.

(5)  The amount of the allocation fee paid by a person acquiring quota
units by auction pursuant to this section must be determined by the amount
of the successful bid made by that person for the block of quota units
being offered.

(6)  The Board may allocate quota to the successful bidders in accordance
with their bids if the Board is satisfied that the bidders have complied
with this Regulation.

(7)  The Board may establish procedures for the conduct of an auction.


Rock cornish marketings
14   Rock cornish chicken marketings must be charged, on a percentage basis 
determined by the Board, against the authorized producer's marketing quota
for the production cycle during which the marketings occur.


Marketing quota calculation
15(1)  Subject to any adjustments made pursuant to this Regulation, an
authorized producer's marketing quota expressed in kilograms is the number
determined by

     (a)  multiplying the quota units that are allocated to an authorized
producer by the density factor established by the Board by resolution,

     (b)  then multiplying the product determined under clause (a) by the
number of weeks in that producer's production cycle, and

     (c)  then multiplying the product determined under clause (b) by the
percentage of utilization established by the Board for that production
cycle.

(2)  For the purposes of subsection (1), a density factor may not be
established for each individual producer but a density factor must be
established that is generally applicable to all producers.


Marketing quota change
16   When the Board considers it appropriate to vary the production of
chicken to accommodate an anticipated change in the demand for chicken for
the next 12 months or less, the Board may by resolution change the
marketing quota by changing the allowed percentage of utilization for the
quota units.


Production cycle
17(1)  The Board must by resolution establish a production cycle

     (a)  for broilers, and

     (b)  for roasters.

the authorized producer and endorsed by the authorized producer's hatchery
and processor.


Authorized quota reallocation
18(1)  An authorized producer shall not transfer all or any part of
authorized quota.

(2)  Despite subsection (1), an authorized producer may apply to the Board
to have that producer's authorized quota cancelled and reallocated, in
whole or in part, to another person who is eligible to become an authorized
producer.

(3)  An application for cancellation and reallocation under this section
must be made prior to the completion of the sale of any authorized quota
with or without the production facilities and premises.

(4)  The approval of the reallocation of authorized quota shall not take
effect, and the current authorized quota shall not be cancelled, until the
completion of the sale and the filing with the Board of any proof that the
Board may require.

(5)  The effective date of the reallocation must be determined by the Board
so that the cancellation and reallocation correspond with the end of a
particular production cycle.

(6)  Subject to subsection (7), if an application for cancellation and
reallocation is made under this section, a fee of $200 is payable to the
Board and that fee must accompany the application for the cancellation and
reallocation.

(7)  A fee is not payable under subsection (6) if

     (a)  there is no change in beneficial ownership of the production
facilities and premises for which there is a reallocation of authorized
quota, or

     (b)  the application is for reallocation to a person within the
family.

(8)  If an authorized producer has overmarketed and the authorized quota is
reallocated, the person to whom the authorized quota has been reallocated
must reduce future marketings in accordance with section 23(2).

not be reallocated until all outstanding levies and judgments in respect of
the overmarketing are paid to the Board.

must pay to the Board an annual service charge of $250 by January 31 of
each year.

(5)  If the annual service charge is not paid by January 31 in the year it
is due, the Board may cancel the communal group production quota.

allocation or reallocation of an authorized quota, the communal group
production quota is cancelled on that allocation or reallocation of the

     Division 2
     Variation from Authorized Marketing

Marketing in excess of marketing quota
23(1)  An authorized producer shall not market chicken in excess of the
marketing quota allocated to that producer.

(2)  If an authorized producer markets chicken in contravention of
subsection (1), the Board must in a subsequent production cycle, without
permanently reducing the authorized quota allocated to that producer,
reduce the weight of chicken that the producer may market by an amount
equal to the weight of the chicken that was marketed in excess of that
producer's marketing quota.

(3)  An authorized producer who has marketed chicken contrary to subsection
(1) must pay to the Board a levy of

     (a)  44› a kilogram for each kilogram of chicken marketed in excess
of 105% but not more than 110%, and

     (b)  88› a kilogram for each kilogram of chicken marketed in excess
of 110%

of the producer's marketing quota for the production cycle.

(4)  The levy provided for under subsection (3) must be paid even though
the authorized producer reduces the excess marketings in accordance with
subsection (2).

(5)  The levy provided for under subsection (3) must be paid within 30 days
from the date that the authorized producer was billed for the levy by the
Board.

(6)  If the levy provided for under subsection (3) is not received by the
Board within 30 days from the date that the authorized producer is billed
for the levy by the Board, that producer must pay an additional levy of 4›
a kilogram.

(7)  A levy provided for under this section is a debt due to the Board and
may be recovered by the Board by civil action for debt.


Marketing less than marketing quota
24   If an authorized producer markets less chicken than that producer is
permitted to market pursuant to the marketing quota allocated to that
producer, that producer's allowed marketing of chicken must be increased in
a subsequent production cycle by the lesser of 

     (a)  the marketing deficit, or

     (b)  5% of the producer's marketing quota in effect at the time of
the marketing deficit.


Establishment of period for marketing correction
25   The Board must establish by resolution when

     (a)  reductions in marketings are to occur for the purpose of
section 23(2), and

     (b)  increases in marketings are to occur for the purpose of section
24.


Late or early marketings
26   If a processor changes the date on which an authorized producer
markets chicken from that set out in the information provided to the Board
under section 9(6) and (7) in order to meet a market demand, and as a
result of the change in the date the producer markets more or less chicken
than allowed under that producer's marketing quota, the Board may

     (a)  waive any levies that resulted from the delay in marketings, or

     (b)  allow increased marketings in subsequent production cycles to
compensate for undermarketings that result from the advance in marketings.


Reduced marketing due to misfortune
27(1)  Despite section 24, if an authorized producer due to misfortune
markets less chicken in a production cycle than that producer is permitted
to market pursuant to the marketing quota allocated to that producer, that
producer may in writing apply to the Board for marketing quota
compensation.

(2)  An authorized producer is not eligible for compensation under
subsection (1) unless the misfortune causes the producer to market less
than 90% of the producer's marketing quota that was in effect at the time
of the occurrence of the misfortune.

(3)  In making an application under subsection (1), the authorized producer
must provide to the Board all the information regarding the number of
chicks placed and the kilograms of chicken that were marketed and any other
documentation and information that the Board requires.  

(4)  If the Board grants marketing quota compensation to an applicant, the
amount of the compensation must be determined by subtracting from the total
amount of the producer's marketing quota that was in effect during the
production cycle during which the reduced marketings took place the amount
that is determined by adding together

     (a)  the actual marketings from all of that producer's production
facilities and premises that were made during the cycle during which the
reduced marketings took place, and 

     (b)  10% of that producer's marketing quota that was in effect at
the time of occurrence of the misfortune.

(5)  An authorized producer shall not utilize any of the marketing quota
compensation granted to that producer until that producer and the Board
agree to the production cycle or cycles in respect of which the
compensation is to be granted.

(6)  The maximum amount of marketing quota compensation that may be granted
to an authorized producer under this section is the total of 

     (a)  the marketing quota that the producer would have been entitled
to for the 12 weeks following the occurrence of the misfortune, and 

     (b)  the amount of marketing quota compensation, if any, granted
under subsection (4).

be made under subsection (2).

(5)  If the Board determines that the application is acceptable, the Board
may determine

     (a)  the period for which the offer of new market development quota
will be made, and

     (b)  the amount per kilogram that a producer must pay to a
designated processor in order to be entitled to lease new market
development quota.

(6)  The Board must advise the applicant of its determination under
subsection (5).

(7)  Within the time specified by a resolution of the Board,  authorized
producers may file with the Board a bid to lease new market development
quota.

(8)  A bid must

     (a)  be in the form satisfactory to the Board, and

     (b)  set out the maximum number of kilograms of new market
development quota the authorized producer is prepared to commit to lease.

(9)  The maximum bid that an authorized producer may make is equal to the
marketing quota that would be available to that producer if the utilization
factor in effect in the period were 100%.

(10)  If the total kilograms of bids filed by authorized producers is less
than the amount of chicken required by the applicant, the offer is void
unless the applicant agrees to reduce the applicant's requirement so that
it equals the amount of the bids.

(11)  If an offer is void under subsection (10), the Board and applicant
may agree that a new offer be made to authorized producers at a reduced
lease rate.

(12)  The Board must distribute the total amount of leased quota available
in rounds of one quota unit to each bidder until all available leased quota
is distributed.

(13)  The Board must advise each authorized producer who bid of 

     (a)  the amount of quota that the producer is eligible to lease as
determined in accordance with subsection (12), and

     (b)  the amount payable to the designated processor for the
opportunity to lease new market development quota.

(14)  On receipt of confirmation from the designated processor that the
authorized producer has paid the amount payable under subsection (13), the
Board must

     (a)  lease to that producer new market development quota, and

     (b)  specify the number of kilograms of new market development quota
and the production cycle to which that lease applies.
