WVLX adheres to upholding the highest possible animal welfare standards and always aims to comply with the Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines for Livestock at Saleyards and Depots.

WVLX requires all vendors and transporters consigning or delivering livestock to the WVLX Facility to comply with the Industry Standards as stated in the MLA document “Is it Fit to Load?” – see below.

Livestock will not be accepted at WVLX which fail to comply with the “Is it Fit to Load?” guidelines. All injured, diseased or moribund livestock will be destroyed immediately, and relevant charges applied to the vendor through their Agent. Vendors should check with their preferred Agent for the current schedule of fees and charges to euthanise and dispose of livestock at WVLX.

The publication “Is it Fit to Load?” clearly sets out the minimum requirements for producers and transporters when consigning livestock. It is recommended that all producers and transporters familiarize themselves with this publication.
