Have your say on preg test­ing, ovar­ian scan­ning

The Northern Star - Northern New South Wales Rural Weekly - - NEWS -

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.
