ALMA ANIMAL WELFARE AWARD
Why did ALMA create an excellence in Animal Welfare Award?
ALMA is the peak national body representing saleyards and lairages in Australia.
ALMA recognises that this industry understands that positive animal health environments are fundamental to the operation of saleyards and lairages, and through design and practice those involved in the industry work to promote desirable animal welfare outcomes.
ALMA wants these positive animal welfare practices and outcomes to be encouraged, recognised and supported throughout the industry.
ALMA is also keen to foster innovation in regard to the promotion and practice of positive health environments.
In recognition, ALMA created the National Award for Animal Welfare in Saleyards and Lairages.
