Goat Background

The finalisation of the Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines for Goats is currently not on the Animal Welfare Task Groups (AWTG) work plan. The goat industry, however, agreed to take the initiative and develop industry Goat Welfare Standards and Guidelines that in the future could become endorsed into legislation.

The goat industry standards and guidelines are an industry document only, the standards and guidelines are voluntary and at this stage will not develop a Regulation Impact Statement out for public consultation or be regulated by Government.
