The Australian State and Territory Ministers have endorsed the Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines for Sheep Version 1 January 2016.

The welfare standards and guidelines for livestock aim to streamline livestock welfare legislation in Australia, ensuring that they are consistent across States, practical for industry and result in improved welfare outcomes.

The development of welfare standards and guidelines underpins access to overseas markets and reinforces Australia's international leadership in livestock welfare. Further information on the Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines is available here http://www.animalwelfarestandards.net.au/
