WA Subsidised Disease Investigation Pilot Program

04 January 2016

The Subsidised Disease Investigation Pilot Program is delivered by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA), as part of the Boosting Biosecurity Defences Project and is funded through the Royalties for Regions program.

This pilot program aims to boost Western Australia’s capacity to detect exotic animal diseases early by reducing the cost to livestock producers of investigating signs of disease in their stock.

The pilot started in March 2015 and will run until September 2017. The pilot will subsidise the cost of a full veterinary investigation into signs of disease in cattle, sheep, goats or pigs in WA (up to 300 in total).
