Tail docking and castration could be subject to a ban or restrictions under proposed changes to EU animal welfare laws.

Proposed animal welfare law changes under consideration by the European Commission could potentially see procedures like tail docking, castration and dehorning banned or else subject to mandated pain relief procedures banned across European Union countries, with expected flow on effects for Australian exporters.
