Webinar: Practical biosecurity actions for producers

Beef Central, 05/08/2022

Livestock producers wanting practical information and tools to better manage on-farm biosecurity and support industry preparedness for an emergency animal disease outbreak are invited to join an upcoming industry webinar.

This webinar is a follow-up to a recent industry webinar on Foot and Mouth Disease and Lumpy Skin Disease and is occurring via the support from the FMD/LSD Industry Taskforce*.

The webinar continues a collaborative cross-industry approach as the Australian livestock industry works together to keep LSD and FMD out of the country.

The session will be held on Tuesday 9 August from 6pm to 7.30pm AEST.

Industry expert speakers include:

  • MLA Managing Director  Jason Strong,
  • Animal Health Australia Head of Program – Biosecurity Dr Rob Barwell
  • AHA General Manager of Emergency Preparedness, Animal Health and Biosecurity, Dr Samantha Allan
  • Manager – Integrity Systems Co Quality, Policy, and Compliance manager Elizabeth Bradley.

Livestock producers will find out more about:

  • Practical biosecurity and traceability actions that you can implement on-farm.
  • How you can contribute to an effective disease response.
  • The first 72 hours following an emergency animal disease outbreak – what happens during a livestock standstill.
  • Q&A with representatives from Meat & Livestock Australia, Animal Health Australia and Integrity Systems Company.
