 This Code of Practice is intended as a guide for those involved in transporting cattle. It emphasises the responsibilities of the owner of the cattle, or the agent, livestock transporters, attendants and railway officials. It is intended to encourage considerate treatment of the cattle so that transport stress and injury are minimised at all stages of the transport operation.

For this Code, transport includes the period immediately after mustering for loading including any handling in yards, waiting periods, load transport, rest periods and unloading at the point of destination.
