Producer feedback needed for animal health monitoring study
16 November 2017
Goat producers across Australia are invited to participate in an online questionnaire that addresses animal health monitoring, preferred communication methods and information sources.
The questionnaire may take up to 30 minutes to complete.
Researchers from Charles Sturt University, Australian Bureau of Agricultural Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) and CSIRO are working on this study as part of a Rural Research and Development for Profit project* aimed at improving surveillance, preparedness and return to trade from emergency animal disease incursions using foot-andmouth disease as a model.
Participants will not be identified in any reports produced and will have the opportunity to go into a prize draw to win a $50 retail gift voucher.
*This project is supported by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA), through funding from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources as part of its Rural R&D for Profit programme, and by producer levies from Australian FMD-susceptible livestock (cattle, sheep, goats and pigs) industries and Charles Sturt University, leveraging significant in-kind support from the research partners.
The research partners for this project are the Commonwealth Science and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Charles Sturt University (CSU), the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) and the Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, supported by Animal Health Australia (AHA).
