 This Code is intended as a guide for all people responsible for the welfare and husbandry of sheep. This edition has been revised in line with the most recent recommendations of the Animal Welfare Working Group within the Primary Industries Ministerial Council and includes an appendix providing guidelines on the procedure for mulesing sheep.

The wool industry has proposed that mulesing be phased out by 2010 but until then the standards for the conduct of this procedure as outlined in this code must be adhered to.

The Code is intended as a set of guidelines that provides detailed minimum standards for assisting people in understanding the standard of care required to meet their obligations under the laws that operate in Australia’s States and Territories.
