Out of Session Call for Tender – Review and collation of pig welfare research to inform the development of the Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines for Pigs
The Model Code of Practice for the Welfare of Pigs (Pig Code) outlines minimum standards for the welfare of pigs on farms, and applies to all pigs whether commercial, pig keeper or pet. The Code provides a foundation for animal welfare legislation.
The review should provide the Standards and Guidelines Working Group with an accurate examination of the scientific literature and the international pig welfare codes and standards to underpin the future Standards and Guidelines for the Welfare of Animals.
