It is recommended that producers adopt animal welfare guidelines. High standards of animal welfare help the industry by:
- keeping the good reputation of South Australia’s livestock industries
- meeting community expectations.
Land transport of livestock
must comply with the Animal Welfare Regulations 2012 which contain specific requirements about livestock transport.
The regulations specify requirements for:
