Whilst sheep, cattle, chickens and pigs are the bread and butter of Australia’s livestock production, there are a host of other unique livestock sectors across the country that contribute to the economy and require good on-farm biosecurity and emergency animal disease preparedness too.
On this page, you will find the tools to implement the simple, everyday biosecurity practices to protect the health of your livestock, limit production losses and help maintain market access for your industry.
Animal Health Australia has teamed up with Charles Sturt University to develop biosecurity resources and emergency animal disease preparedness information for new and emerging livestock industries including emu, turkey, dairy sheep, buffalo, deer and harvesting industries including rangeland goats and kangaroos.
The project, which is being funded by the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation, commenced with research undertaken by the university to determine attitudes to, and awareness of, biosecurity and emergency animal disease preparedness.
In the coming months resources and information will be developed for each of the new and emerging industry sectors and placed on this webpage.
