Ruminant Feed Ban In Australia

Australia has a high reputation and status in livestock wordwide, especially the ruminants which are exported a lot because of high quality

These high-grade animals are fed by good stockfeed and stockfeed are produced by high-quality Ruminant Feed Making Machine and Plant.

The Australian ruminant feed ban was implemented in 1997 to minimise the possibility that bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE or mad cow disease) would be transmitted by ruminant feed if the disease entered Australia. Ruminants include cattle, sheep, goats, deer, alpacas and llamas.

Australia is internationally recognised as having the lowest possible risk status for BSE that can be assigned to a country (negligible BSE risk status). Without an effective ruminant feed ban, Australia could not achieve this favourable status.

These high-grade animals are fed by good stockfeed and stockfeed are produced by high-quality Ruminant Feed Making Machine and Plant.

The negligible risk status helps Australia's livestock industries to access overseas markets for Australian livestock and livestock products.

The ruminant feed ban also helps to protect human health as BSE can occasionally be transmitted to humans.
