TBA Guidelines for Breeders

Media Release - Tuesday August 11

Thoroughbred Breeders Australia have developed a set of protocols to assist breeders as they plan for the coming months. 

These guidelines are recommendations only and given the rapidly changing situation these may need to be revised in light of future developments.

It is also important to follow any directions given by public health officials. 
 

COVID-19 Walk-On Guidelines:

  1. All paperwork should be completed beforehand and sent electronically where possible.
  2. Stallion farms should keep a record of all people visiting their farm and walking on mares (this can be done electronically or via a paper record).
  3. Those walking on mares should limit their contact with stallion farm staff.
  4. Hand sanitiser should be provided and used by any visitor.
  5. Stallion farms may ask those coming with a walk on mare to remain in the vehicle and have their staff unload and handle the mare. In which case, all handles on the truck should be sanitised.
  6. Alternatively, farms may ask those coming with mares to unload the mare and put her in a stable or walk in yard and remove the head collar.
  7. Where possible farms should set aside a toilet for the use of farm visitors.

The NSW Government has now officially listed the movement of mares as exempt from current border restrictions.
