Boost your farm biose­cu­rity & win a NZ Life­style Block mag­a­zine sub­scrip­tion

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Country Smile -

WHAT DO YOU KNOW about keep­ing your life­style block free from pests and dis­eases? The Min­istry for Pri­mary In­dus­tries (MPI) wants to find out and is invit­ing block own­ers to take part in an on­line sur­vey. Ev­ery­one who fills it in goes in the draw to win one of three 12 is­sue sub­scrip­tions* to NZ Life­style Block mag­a­zine.

MPI is re­spon­si­ble for pro­tect­ing New Zealand’s pri­mary in­dus­tries from bi­o­log­i­cal risk. It does this by stop­ping dis­eases and pests cross­ing NZ’S bor­der and pre­vent­ing them from spread­ing and estab­lish­ing if they do.

It wants to un­der­stand how it can bet­ter help life­style block own­ers learn about their biose­cu­rity re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in or­der to strengthen New Zealand’s biose­cu­rity sys­tems.

Biose­cu­rity is im­por­tant for ev­ery­one. If a large-scale an­i­mal dis­ease epi­demic were to hit New Zealand, stock on life­style blocks would very likely be at

risk of in­fec­tion. Good biose­cu­rity be­hav­iour helps to pre­vent these events, lim­its their im­pact and man­ages any out­breaks.

Fol­low the link be­low to take the 10-minute sur­vey and you’ll be in to win one of three 12 is­sue sub­scrip­tions to NZ Life­style Block mag­a­zine*.
