On Farm Assistance
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.
