Biosecurity Articles and Media Releases
Good biosecurity is a producer’s strongest defense against the risks associated with the introduction of unwanted pests and diseases. Safeguarding the industry against pest and disease incursion has previously been seen as the responsibility of government, however, ensuring good animal health and biosecurity is everyone’s business.
To support producers to be proactive in their management of biosecurity and save them time and money in the long run, two new industry-based roles have been created to promote the benefits of good biosecurity to the South Australian red meat and wool sectors.
South Australian livestock producers now have access to increased on-farm biosecurity support thanks to the appointment of two new biosecurity extension officers.
