Biosecurity in your backyard

17 August, 2022 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Livestock producers and service providers are invited to the Biosecurity in your backyard information session in Benalla.
Good biosecurity is paramount for protecting our economy, environment and community from the negative impacts of pests and diseases.
There are several risk factors that are contributing to an increased threat of a biosecurity incursion in Victoria and Australia.
State, federal and local governments, livestock producers and other supply chain participants including livestock agents, transporters and contractors all share responsibilities in minimising biosecurity risks and impacts to the industry.
