The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) is seeking feedback on proposed regulations designed to take the next step in improving our already strong animal welfare system.

The regulations cover live animal exports, the care and conduct towards animals as well as surgical and painful procedures. The proposed regulations have come about following amendments to the Animal Welfare Act last year.

MPI's Director of Biosecurity and Animal Welfare, Julie Collins urges those with in interest in animal welfare to take the time to look at the proposals and have their say.

Consultation is open from today until 19 May.

The new regulations would be progressively introduced from the end of this year. Some regulations related to young calves may be introduced before the start of the 2016 calving season.
