Other Animals and Livestock
A number of animals – other than sheep and cattle – are kept or farmed in Victoria. These animals play a large part in Victoria’s agricultural industries, producing a diverse range of goods, including meat, milk, wool, honey and eggs. Others, such as horses and working dogs provide companionship or assistance.
DPI provides information around animal and livestock production, regulations, health and welfare and emergencies.
A national Primary Production and Processing Standard for Eggs and Egg Products will come into effect on 26 November 2012.
