The Association takes the position that all farm animal exhibitors have a responsibility to ensure a high standard of animal welfare for all animals in their care. 

Additionally, the Association understands that state and local regulatory authorities assess the members’ compliance with relevant regulations, and undertake their obligations for welfare inspections as required. 


All  exhibitors in NSW must be authorised by the Department of Industry and Investment New South Wales.

This ensures all animals are held and displayed in accordance with strict animal husbandry and welfare guidelines, ensuring the animals welfare is a priority at all times. For more information on license guidelines, please visit this link:
