Annual Membership Quiz

The Association is committed to animal welfare. As part of that commitment we have introduced some eduction/training as part of your membership.

Each year as part of your membership renewal we are asking members to refresh their understanding of good practise and complete a short quiz with a random selection of questions related to animal welfare.

The question content is drawn from documents produced by various industry bodies and governement departments (MLA & Agriculture Victoria etc.) together with our own policies and procedure documents.

   MLA – A producer’s guide to sheep husbandry practices

   Agriculture Victoria’s Responsible Ownership of Farm working dogs

   Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines for Sheep
