Endemic diseases scoping project

Endemic disease influences the profitability of Australian red meat livestock producers. Limited R&D funding should be directed to the most important and economically damaging diseases. MLA considered research to determine the prevalence, risk factors, mitigation and cost of disease in Australian livestock. Subsequently AusVet was commissioned to conduct a scoping project for a potential survey of red meat livestock. 

This report presents the scoping project results. Several steps were taken to scope the survey including literature reviews, a workshop of endemic disease experts, epidemiological assessment and development/scoping of a suitable research project. The public version of this report has financial figures redacted to facilitate tendering.
