RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme

The RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme is Australia’s leading independent accreditation scheme focused on animal welfare. We work closely with farmers to make a positive impact on the lives of farm animals by providing an environment that meets their needs. Millions of hens, pigs, chickens and turkeys have benefited from higher welfare conditions since the Scheme began.

Working with farmers

The RSPCA works with a wide range of stakeholders in the livestock sector, to improve the standards and conditions for farm animal welfare. Our work with farmers includes supporting research and development, engaging with producers through the RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme, and actively contributing to the Standards and Guidelines processes for different livestock industries, to advocate for improvements to animal welfare.

The RSPCA believes you can eat meat or eggs and still care about the welfare of the animals that provide them. And there’s lots of ways that you can support higher welfare farming. Through our humane food initiatives, the RSPCA informs consumers on how they can choose higher welfare products and support animal welfare.
