On Farm Biosecurity Measures
Due to the ever-increasing presence of Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) and Lumpy Skin Disease (LSD) within Indonesia, the livestock industry is being urged to be alert but not alarmed.
Commencing Monday 11 July 2022 TDIA will implement Level 1 farm biosecurity measures which will include the use of footbaths prior to and at the completion of farm audits and inspections.
Farm biosecurity measures are best practice and align with documented procedures, including the AUSVETPLAN. Animal Health Australia (AHA) manages the development and review of the ‘Australian Veterinary Emergency Plan’ (AUSVETPLAN) on behalf of its members.
AUSVETPLAN contains the nationally agreed approach for the response to emergency animal disease (EAD) incidents in Australia. The plan is captured in a series of manuals and supporting documents which can be found on the Animal Health Australia website.
