Kaladbro Station

The rise of intensive sheep feedlots

Kaladbro Station is an indoor intensive finishing feedlot for sheep, located in western Victoria near the South Australian border. With 8000 sheep packed tightly together, many were found in poor physical condition. The facility is owned by Thomas Brinkworth, one of Australia's wealthiest landowners, who has previously been convicted of illegal land-clearing and charged with over 100 counts of animal cruelty for allowing cattle to starve.

Take Action

In the Victorian Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act (POCTAA) and equivalent legislation in other states, farmed animals are specifically exempt from protections afforded to other animals. We are calling on state governments to remove this exemption to ensure farmed animals can be legalled protected from cruelty. In their capacity to suffer, they are no different to the cats and dogs we share our homes with. They deserve to be protected in the same way.
