Most states in Australia deregulated Johne’s Disease (JD) in 2016 and now manage the issue under the new JD framework.

Western Australia has elected to continue to manage JD while the Northern Territory has implemented interim arrangement, specifying a JBAS 7 status as a minimum requirement for entry via Gazette Notice G3. This change to entry requirements means big changes for Queensland in how JD is managed going forward.

During this webinar, Rachael O’Brien from the Livestock Biosecurity Network will discuss the current situation and inform producers of what they need to do to maintain market access post June 2017 to Northern Territory markets.

You’ll hear about:

  • the current situation
  • what is needed to retain market access
  • how you can go about implementing an on-farm biosecurity plan

Guest presenters

Join Rachael O’Brien, Manager – Biosecurity and Extension Queensland (LBN) along with host Greg Bath (FutureBeef).
