Animals in sport – Rodeo Permits
If you wish to hold a rodeo in South Australia you must have a Rodeo Permit issued by the Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation and pay the appropriate fee.
An application for a Rodeo Permit must be lodged at least 28 days prior to the proposed event and all people associated with a rodeo must comply with the Animal Welfare Act 1985 and Animal Welfare Regulations 2012.
To comply with the Animal Welfare Regulations 2012 you must:
- ensure sufficient fencing to protect spectators and prevent injury to the animals at the rodeo
- have a designated veterinarian onsite during prescribed rodeo events involving the use of animals.
Due to changes to the Animal Welfare Regulations 2012, reports are no longer required.
The cost for a rodeo permit is $90 from 1 July 2023.
