Vital to Industry Confidence

The VFF is committed to the continuous improvement of Victoria’s animal welfare regulations and our strong biosecurity system.

Victorian farmers produce word class animal products under world-leading animal welfare regulations. Farmers care for their livestock and how they are managed and handled throughout the supply chain.

Important to the protection of livestock and crops is a strong biosecurity system that ensures the traceability of animals and swift response to biosecurity threats. Exotic pest plants and animal pose a destructive threat to agriculture. Maintaining a strong biosecurity system is vital to industry confidence.
