Feedback on horse identification and traceability

SHARE: 

Posted: Wed, 6th Sep 2017

The NSW Government would like feedback regarding horse identifications and traceability. Take the survey now!

I invite you to participate in a short survey regarding horse identification and traceability.

Your feedback is important in gauging views on the possible compulsory identification of all horses in NSW, for example with a microchip, with these details registered in a central database.

NSW Department of Primary Industries is considering compulsory identification for horses to improve disease control and traceability, but recognise there could be other benefits, such as reducing horse theft and misrepresentation, improving horse welfare and rider and handler safety

Any other information or advice you can supply will be useful in our consideration of whether this proposal would benefit the NSW and national horse industry.

The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete and we would appreciate to have your response by 1 December 2017. View the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HorseID

Please help us get the message out and share the survey with your members via email or sharing on your Facebook page (if applicable).  

If you have any questions please contact Lisa Burrows, Leader, Traceability at lisa.burrows@dpi.nsw.gov.au or 02 6391 3212.
