Australia: new standards raise bar on stock transport

South Australia will be among the first states to implement new national regulations for transporting livestock.

Tuesday 3 July 2012 (5 years 10 months 25 days ago)

South Australia will be among the first states to implement new national regulations for transporting livestock. From August 1 it will introduce guidelines developed by producers, transporters, animal welfare groups and government over the past five years covering all livestock including sheep, cattle, goats, pigs and horses.

The Australian Livestock Transport Standards and Guidelines cover the responsibility of producers, agents, livestock transporters and processors to monitor time off water and ensure all livestock are 'fit to load'. They will be introduced into Victoria and the Northern Territory on July 1 and implemented nationally by 2013.

The new standards have specific provisions for each species and class of livestock.
