Farm Biosecurity | Animal Health Australia
In May 2022 an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) was reported in cattle in Indonesia. Cases were first detected in April.
With the outbreak being so close to our shores, farmers around the country are preparing and taking extra precautions to prevent this disease from entering their farms.
All livestock owners should have stringent biosecurity measures in place on their property. These include signage.
Simple actions each farm can take, including:
• Limiting the number of access points to the property (lock unused gates)
• Use signs to direct visitors to designated parking or reception areas.
• Access to production areas (fields, paddocks, or sheds) should be limited to a restricted range of personnel only.
