Learn about livestock transport
From the farm, sheep and cattle are loaded onto a truck.
Australian farms are often both large and remote, so transport is required overland to saleyards, feedlots and quarantine facilities.
Farmer Bindi explains how she prepares sheep on farm to be loaded onto a truck.
Australia’s trucking industry is one of the most highly regulated in the world and our drivers often come from farming backgrounds.
This means they have a lifetime of experience handling and looking after animals.
Drivers are a critical part of the supply chain.

Animal Welfare and trucks
Truck drivers ensure the health and welfare of the livestock is taken seriously and are responsible for the animals’ safe arrival to their destination.
Only healthy animals are loaded, they are boarded and transported with care.
