Safety

Being safe on the farm is important, especially when handling cattle and deer. Animals are bigger than you, they move faster than you and they can kick a lot harder than you. Handling them safely is a skill.

People handling animals need to be well trained so they can care for the animals, maintain animal welfare and production standards and avoid being harmed themselves.

For animals that are considered too dangerous to tag, we encourage you to use the impractical to tag exemption. The animals must be going directly to a meat processor. This exemption incurs a levy of $13 per head excluding GST.
