The code aims to set an industry standard by defining acceptable cattle management practices in situations, which vary from extensive grazing to close confinement and housing. Whatever the form of husbandry, owners and managers have a responsibility for the health, welfare and considerate treatment of the animals under their control so that stress to the animals is minimised. The basic needs of cattle for adequate food, water, air, shelter, comfort and freedom to move and express normal behavior patterns are considered in this document, irrespective of the type of husbandry practiced.
