The Dairy Welfare Guide has been updated. The 2012 Guide goes into much more detail than the one it replaces. For example, the revised Guide includes more information on how to score the body condition of dairy cattle.
The new Guide was developed by the Dairy Health and Welfare Action Group, which comprises people from the dairy industry, TFGA, RSPCA, vets, milk suppliers, DPIPWE and the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA).
The 2012 Dairy Welfare Guide is now available on the DPIPWE website.
