Are your stock fit for sale?
There are specific requirements for livestock transport in Australia. Under these standards it is an offence to load and transport an animal in a way that causes, or is likely to cause, unnecessary harm.
Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) have developeda guide to help you decide if an animal is fit to be loaded for transport, by road or rail, to any destination within Australia. Click here for a copy of the guide on the MLA website.
If in doubt leave it out.
