ELECTRIC PRODDERS

Pursuant to the provisions of clause 14(3)(b) of the Constitution, the Board has passed a new competition rule that will come into effect immediately relating to the use of electric prodders on timed event stock. 

 
Now more than ever we need to show we are being proactive with animal welfare. 
 
By enforcing this rule we are self-regulating and showing that we are following the direction of the industry.
 
Rule 33.24
Timed event contractors are only permitted to use an electric prodder with a maximum of 5000 volts and no larger than 20cm in length.  A prodder can only be utilised by the approved contractor/sub-contractor at each rodeo who will be held responsible for any misuse. This relates to all handling of timed event stock at a rodeo. Government regulations in each state must also be complied with. A first offence breach of this rule carries a fine of $500 to the approved stock contractor. A second offence breach will be referred to the Board of Directors.
 
This rule is in effect as of 19 July 2019.
 
The Board will also be reviewing the use of electric prodders at the roughstock end of the arena over the coming months so please be mindful that any use is not excessive.
 
An example of the type of prodder to be used can be found here.
