When does clean, really mean clean when it comes to purchasing a second-hand machine?
A number of detections of cattle tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) in tick-free zones have prompted Animal Health Australia to promote proactive biosecurity process and due diligence when buying or selling livestock.
Buying or selling sheep? The movement of livestock presents one of the biggest risks for spreading disease to new properties and flocks. That is why, when livestock are sold, it is important to also provide any records related to their health and well-being. This assists the new owner in providing the best possible care to those animals in the future and to integrate them into an existing flock.
Sourcing information on how to secure your farm against diseases, pests and weeds just became a whole lot easier, with growers and producers now having improved access to a vast suite of resources on the Farm Biosecurity website.
Vegetable and potato growers Tim Carnell and Scott Rockliff may run businesses at opposite ends of Australia, but they are both aware of the biosecurity measures that are important to them.
