Sheep, Cattle and Goat Yard Manual

Australian sheep and cattle are often exported to overseas markets. The Australian industry is committed to improving these overseas markets to ensure safe animal welfare standards.

What are we doing?

The aim of this project is to upgrade and produce a manual of livestock handling facility designs that are suitable for ports, farms/feedlots and abattoirs in export markets. Truck specific designs for components such as pens, gates, side and flooring options will also be included. The manual will be a one-stop-shop of facility designs for the live export trade, covering sheep, goats and cattle.
