Published in late 2020, the Guide to Pain Relief in the Grass-fed Beef Cattle Sector suggests Tri-Solfen® as a pain relief consideration. The guide can be downloaded here.
Animal Welfare Standards for Cattle are being regulated progressively by state/territory governments. When regulated within a state or territory, the use of pain relief will be compulsory for castration and dehorning of animals above certain ages – for details see the Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines for Cattle (Standards 6.2 and 6.4). Producers are encouraged to consider pain relief for aversive procedures on all their cattle.
