Safety and Welfare in Livestock Auction Markets

Due to ever increasing requirements for Health & Safety and Animal Health and Welfare as well as Traceability, everyone needs to be sure they are working to the highest of standards.

The Livestock Auctioneers Association (LAA) has developed a Drovers Training Scheme in co-operation with Miriam Parker (Livestockwise) and the AHDB.

The training scheme is available both as a physical course and a remote online course. There are now 24 markets using the online service, with nearly 250 drovers registered and having logged into the portal, and between them, have now completed over 1,000 individual courses.
