Have your say on preg testing, ovarian scanning
THE Queensland Government is seeking feedback about cattle pregnancy testing and ovarian scanning for commercial purposes and scientific research.
Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries Mark Furner said currently, only registered veterinarian surgeons could conduct pregnancy testing of cattle or ovarian scanning for payment.
“The consultation process will help us to determine the benefit to industry if people other than veterinarian surgeons can conduct pregnancy testing and ovarian scanning,” Mr Furner said.
“It will also look at whether there are any animal welfare implications, and if there would be any impacts on private veterinary services,” he said.
