Veterinary Inspectors and Technical Agricultural Officers of my Department around the country are tasked with striving to ensure that animals are being farmed ethically, developing initiatives aimed at cultivating best practice, particularly in relation to animal health and welfare, and conducting disease control related inspections at farm level under Animal Health and Welfare regulations.

My Department does not employ animal welfare investigators.
