Public Consultation on the proposed Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guideline and Guidelines for Livestock in Saleyards is now open.
This guideline will aim to improve and harmonise rules nationwide, for the care and management of livestock during their transition through saleyards in WA.
WAFarmers is seeking member advice on any relevant issues regarding:
- How the proposed Saleyard Welfare Standards will ensure the welfare of livestock
- How the consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) demonstrates the need for the standards, and identifies costs and benefits for livestock owners/buyers/saleyard operators/agents/government/and the wider community.
Please direct feedback to Jess Moniodis on 08 9486 2100 or [email protected].
The submission is due December 12, 2014 and further information and all relevant documentation can be downloaded at: http://www.saleyardwelfarestandards.com.au/
