Livestock Supply Chain Review

Consultation closed Sunday 31 May 2020.

Why we’re consulting

The purpose of this consultation is to seek comment on the Livestock Supply Chain Review Issues Paper, Improving awareness and practices in the livestock supply chain, to assist in the development of recommendations to improve safety and/or productivity outcomes across the livestock supply chain.

What is it?

The purpose of the Livestock Supply Chain Review is to identify the relationship, influences, understanding and capabilities of the parties who impact the safety and productivity of livestock supply chain road transport movements, with a view to ensuring certainty, process and risk mitigation strategies around mass management regulatory compliance obligations.

The NHVR has developed the issues paper in consultation with industry through individual meetings, phone calls and attendance at prominent industry events. Additionally, we have interviewed livestock transport drivers at saleyards to identify challenges and opportunities to address mass management issues.

However, we are aware that this issues paper does not provide a complete overview of all the opinions of, and strategies, policies and procedures employed by, the livestock supply chain. We want to provide everyone involved in the supply chain with the opportunity to have their say on what’s working well, what’s not working, and what could be changed to improve safety and productivity outcomes.
