BIOSE­CU­RITY Queens­land has part­nered with the or­gan­is­ers of Beef Aus­tralia 2018 to make sure no un­wanted pests make it into this year’s event. Queens­land chief vet­eri­nary of­fi­cer Dr Al­li­son Crook said biose­cu­rity of­fi­cers had been work­ing closely with Beef Aus­tralia to pre­pare their de­tailed plan for in­com­ing and out­go­ing live­stock at the state’s big­gest cat­tle expo. “To make sure there are no dis­ease is­sues, there will be a range of pre­ven­ta­tive ac­tions for event or­gan­is­ers and ex­hibitors to un­der­take, and the health of live­stock will be mon­i­tored through­out the event,” Dr Crook said. “All as­pects of an­i­mal hus­bandry, in­clud­ing feed, water and bed­ding have been taken into con­sid­er­a­tion, and Beef Aus­tralia has ar­ranged for a vet­eri­nar­ian to be on standby to deal with any stock-re­lated in­juries or ill­nesses.”
