Winter Grazing Action Group - Expected Outcomes for Animal Welfare

This document provides guidance for animal welfare while grazing winter crops. The suggestions are not legal minimum standards or requirements – and are intended to give confidence to farmers who are already meeting or exceeding industry expectations and provide suggestions for improvement to those who still have a way to go. The sole focus of the advice below is animal welfare; however, there are also environmental responsibilities and requirements which farmers need to follow when making their winter grazing plans.
