Handbook of best practice guidelines for the Australian feedlot industry

The aim of this handbook is to provide a concise guide and reference document for feedlot operators and their employees to promote improved practices in the Australian feedlot industry.

The handbook is a tool to assist feedlot operators in setting guidelines, identifying outcomes and key operational procedures for best practice standards in alignment with the National Feedlot Accreditation Scheme (NFAS). The document is not a substitute for the quality management system in feedlots but rather a practical guide for feedlot operators to consider in their operational and management programs.

The handbook can be used to assist in the training of employees, the development of in-house procedures and to review requirements for feedlots over time.
