Sheep in Tasmania

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Until 2011 Tasmania imposed regulatory restrictions on four 'exotic' breeds of sheep under the Animal Farming (Registration) Act 1994. Those regulations were subsequently repealed and a voluntary Code of Practice developed to encourage all keepers of sheep in Tasmania to adopt best practice management. 

The Voluntary Code of Practice for managing sheep in Tasmania without prescription under the Animal Farming (Registration) Act 1994 was finalised after a period of public consultation in 2011.
