As part of the Farm Biosecurity Program, an initiative led by Plant Health Australia (PHA) and Animal Health Australia (AHA), we visited Gundamain Pastoral Co. in Eugowra NSW, to get footage of the daily lives of two prominent farmers and their commitment to strong biosecurity practices.
The first filming trip took place in Eugowra, NSW focusing on the Herbert family of Gundamain Pastoral Co. The family’s approach to maintaining biosecurity measures is a key aspect of the film, demonstrating how such practices are integral not only to the health of Australia’s agriculture but also to the well-being of the farming community and the nation.
During the visit, the crew captured the essence of the Herberts’ work and how they implement biosecurity on their farm. The aim is to provide a realistic view of the measures farmers take to protect their livelihoods and the agricultural industry at large from biosecurity threats.
The project is not just about capturing farm routines, it’s about highlighting the significance of biosecurity and its impact on the agricultural sector. By showcasing the Herberts’ story, we hope to educate and encourage farmers across the nation to adopt and prioritise biosecurity measures.
The initiative reflects the Farm Biosecurity Program’s commitment to biosecurity education and is anticipated to be a valuable resource for farmers, biosecurity professionals, and the wider community. It will emphasise the message that proactive biosecurity is crucial for safeguarding Australian agriculture.
