New rules around tail-docking of sheep in New Zealand

Under their animal welfare regulations, the Ministry of Primary Industries has introduced some new rulings around the tail-docking of sheep in New Zealand.

From 9 May 2021, new rules for how tail-docking sheep under 6 months of age must be carried out come into effect, as does a new ruling that for sheep over 6 months tail-docking must be done by a veterinarian, using pain relief.

For the full details please download the official document ‘Heads up on tail-docking!’ from the website of the Ministry of Primary Industries.
