Lo­cal Land Ser­vices help biose­cu­rity change

The Daily Examiner - - NEWS -

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.
