Submission in relation to the Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines for Poultry

In February 2018, the Animal Law Institute submitted its views in response to a public consultation on the Australian Welfare Standards and Guidelines for Poultry.

This submission acknowledged our views that both public opinion and relevant science are strongly in favour of discontinuing the use of battery cages for layer hens, and therefore addressed the Standards’ proposition to continue the use of battery cages.
