Animal Welfare Transport Subsidy

The NSW Government is subsidising 50% of eligible costs for the permanent transport of stock off a farm which is facing financial hardship and where livestock are at fat score 2 or below (dairy cattle 3 or below), to a maximum of $20,000 per financial year.

    This program is funds limited with $500,000 available in each financial year.

    Are you eligible?

    A subsidy on the transport of stock is permanently available to primary producers where:

    • animals are at significant risk in terms of animal welfare;
    • there is little or no feed and/or water available. This includes both pasture and stored fodder;
    • animals leave the farming enterprise permanently; and
    • the enterprise demonstrates a significant financial need.
