Animal welfare is our key priority at every level of our business.
Not only is animal welfare ethically imperative to us as a company, but we understand that animals are most productive when happy and healthy.
AUSTREX prioritises safe delivery of happy, healthy cattle by adopting the ‘Five Domains’ approach across our diverse supply chains. By committing to the Five Domains, we are not merely committing to do no harm, but to proactively pursue a positive welfare state for all animals in our care.
Our Australian livestock exports are overseen by the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment (DAWE) and we continually maintain our Australian Livestock Export License with an Approved Arrangement Level Three (the highest possible approval level).
All sea vessels used by AUSTREX meet the requirements of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) and are crewed by qualified, experienced staff who are trained in livestock care.
AUSTREX walks hand-in-hand with our customers, maintaining long-term customer support to ensure the ongoing management of our livestock meets our welfare criteria.
We develop lasting relationships across our supply chain, where all partners share a mutual commitment to long-term stock performance and welfare.
