Livestock checklist

Agriculture Victoria has created a livestock transport checklist to help farmers prepare and plan their trips.

Technical specialist Kirstie Anderson said the transport of cattle, sheep or goats involved rules and regulations across several agencies.

“The new ‘Transporting livestock responsibilities and recommendations’ web page provides everything farmers need to be across from market expectations to curfews, animals being fit to load, planning the journey and getting the paperwork right,” she said.

“If you’re selling livestock, either for slaughter over the hooks, to the saleyard or in a private sale, it’s important to consider whether the stock meets your customer’s requirements.

“The page provides a checklist of everything you need to be ready for market, to plan your journey and to get the paperwork right.”
