Important informationNew rules requiring local anaesthetic to be used when dehorning & disbudding cattle are now in place.
Dehorning and disbudding are painful. Veterinarians and industry organisations have been encouraging the use of pain relief for many years, and a lot of people are already using it. The new rules will bring everyone up to the same standard, and improve the welfare of cattle, by making it clear that local anaesthetic, prescribed by a New Zealand veterinarian, must be used and applied correctly.
Failure to abide by the requirements from 1 October 2019 is a criminal offence. A prosecution could result in a criminal conviction and fine under the regulations.
These regulations apply to all cattle regardless of age, or whether they’re on a farm or lifestyle block. Find out more on our website: bit.ly/2nXnuvu... See MoreSee Less
