Have a say on the proposed Australian Animal Welfare S&G for saleyards
« Reply #1 on: September 13, 2014, 12:08:07 AM »
 Public Consultation on the proposed Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines for Livestock in Saleyards and and Consultation Regulation Impact Statement is now open for a period of 90 days until Friday 12th December 2014.

The proposed Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines for Livestock in Saleyards and Depots (Saleyard Welfare Standards) will create improved and nationally consistent rules for the care and management of livestock during their transition through saleyards and depots in Australia.
 
The associated Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) identifies the costs and benefits for protecting the welfare of livestock in saleyards and depots, and demonstrates the need for the Saleyard Welfare Standards.
 We seek views from interested parties about how the:
 
  • proposed Saleyard Welfare Standards will ensure the welfare of livestock, and
  • associated Consultation RIS demonstrates the need for the standards, and identifies the key costs and benefits for livestock owners and buyers, saleyard operators, livestock agents, government and the wider community.
  Written submissions, preferably on the provided submission form can be sent either by:
  • email with attachments to lms.mailbox@depi.vic.gov.au; or
  • mail addressed to "Saleyard Welfare Standards Public Consultation", DEPI Hamilton, Private Bag 105, Hamilton, VIC 3300.
