Local Land Services help biosecurity change
WORKSHOPS held on the North Coast have contributed to the pivotal role Local Land Services has played across the state in supporting more than 9000 landholders through a range of biosecurity changes.
More than 9000 producers sought personal advice at workshops coordinated and supported by Local Land Services to help graziers understand and adapt to recent industry-led changes and the new biosecurity legislation requirements.
Biosecurity and Emergency Services manager Jo McGoldrick said more than 30 workshops had given participants hands-on knowledge of how to develop on-farm biosecurity plans.
While Animal Health Australia was responsible for rolling out the new LPA requirements, Local Land Services supported landholders through the transition by staging 161 workshops across the state, as well as taking thousands of phone calls and responding to emails.
Producers who don’t have a biosecurity plan in place should visit www.mlsa.com.au/lpachanges or phone the Meat and Livestock Australia hotline on 180 0683 111 for information.
