Protecting your business with a biosecurity plan

Biosecurity is an important consideration for every land manager. Protecting your property from disease and weed risks is essential.

In this short video, Ann Coward, a grazier from Calliope in Queensland, describes the four key elements of a biosecurity plan for your property.

The Livestock Biosecurity Network website has a range of resources, including several templates, to help you create your own biosecurity plan.

For up-to-date information, tools and resources you can visit the Farm Biosecurity website, or contact your local state or territory Department of Agriculture.

The Animal Health Australia website has a range of tools and resources to assist cattle producers to develop biosecurity plans for their property. The on-farm planning templates can be used for the Livestock Production Assurance program and J-BAS. You can watch a short video to help you fill out your plan.

If your property is located in Queensland, visit the DAF Queensland website for more information about your biosecurity obligations. You can contact your local Biosecurity officer by telephoning the DAF Customer Call Centre on 13 25 23 (within Queensland) or 07 3404 6999.
