Agriculture confronts a large volume of uncontrollable factors – more than in any other industry. While no one would hope for a drought or a trade ban, such non-controllable factors produce what is ultimately a class collective. Arguably, as Australian agriculture hits the midpoint of 2021, two factors outside the control of every farmer have put the industry in one of the best positions it has been in for some time.

The Livestock Health Monitoring program collects confidential/anonymous information on livestock diseases and conditions observed by rural service providers and abattoir data from the National Sheep Health Monitoring Project in Tasmania and produces a monthly report that is circulated as widely as possible amongst Tasmanian livestock producers and service providers.
The program is designed to keep Tasmanian livestock producers and rural service providers up to date on what livestock diseases and conditions are currently occurring in Tasmania. This should mean earlier diagnosis, more effective treatment and better prevention of future outbreaks.
