Australia is a world leader in welfare practices related to livestock exports and no other livestock exporting country has the same commitment to improving animal welfare throughout the livestock exporting supply chain. Of the 109 countries exporting livestock globally, Australia is the only country in the world that invests in animal welfare beyond its borders.
Kylie from Dowlco Livestock is a passionate supporter of cattle live export and good animal welfare.“While exporting supports my family’s mixed farming enterprise, it also provides countries less fortunate than us, with an affordable, quality protein source. Australians live in abundance, with many choices of food to provide them with their daily protein requirements, but this is not the case world wide.”
An exporter under the Australian Government regulatory framework is responsible for the health and welfare of Australian livestock and must comply with the stringent requirements of the Australian Standards for the Export of Livestock (ASEL) and the Exporter Supply Chain Assurance Scheme (ESCAS)
