Australian Cattle Council : Yearbook 2010
51 YEARBOOK 2010 CATTLE COUNCIL OF AUSTRALIA NLIS CATTLE TAG PRICES -- STILL AUSTRALIA'S CHEAPEST The announcement that Victorian Cattle producers could purchase NLIS tags for as little as $1.20 has been well received. Again this has been made possible by industry, represented by the VFF working with the state government to negotiate a great deal. LIVESTOCK SELLING CENTRES The VFF will continue to represent livestock producer's interests in livestock selling centres. At present there are a number of changes occurring in the Victorian saleyard sector. The VFF livestock group has maintained pressure on all parties involved to ensure that the process of selling livestock is fair and transparent. This will continue to be a focus for the organisation in the coming years. ANIMAL WELFARE National Codes of Practice are currently being converted to Standards and Guidelines format where Standards will be covered by State legislation. The Victorian State Government is developing the "Livestock Management Act" that will see the industry 'codes' effectively setting the standards for animal welfare. VFF Livestock is in consultation with government over this proposed legislation and its implementation as well as working with industry to ensure that the Standards and Guidelines are realistic and practical.
