To the March edition of our joint newsletter. Animal health conditions and biosecurity can have a huge impact on your bottom line of a sheep enterprise.
The industry is committed to continuous improvement across all facets of the farm business. Australian graziers continue to invest in the health and welfare of their sheep through a variety of animal husbandry practices that are suited to the sheep type and the environment. Over the last 5 years the
sheep industry has invested more than $50 million into sheep welfare R&D programs for parasite control, vaccination and other animal health issues all of which lead to improvements in animal welfare.
In this edition we discuss a range of industry initiatives, including
- The development of the Barbers Pole vaccine
- Lice and worm management tools
- Livestock Production
Conditions (LPC) Pilot Project
- Wild Dogs
- NLIS update
- Sheep Industry Strategic Plan
- Do you need assistance with a biosecurity plan?
You'll also hear from SCA and WPA Presidents and see profiles of some of your representatives on SCA and WPA.
We are also including a new section to profile a young sheep industry leader, and this time
'round the Young Talent is Felicity Brumpton.
There are also a number of links to sheepmeat and wool extension groups and industry events.
