  • This is a busy week for all stock movement and all participants have a role to play so that M Bovis, or other diseases, are not inadvertently spread. All stock movements need to be recorded so that if they unfortunately do become suspect, they can be easily traced. Remember to ensure all animals have the correct NAIT tags, and are registered in NAIT.

    Avoid mixing stock during transport. During trucking, make sure stock don’t pass through other places where animals can mix, such as sale yards.

    Discuss the situation with your graziers. Hosting your stock is also of risk for them.  Focus on preventing contact with cattle from other herds at those locations. Ensure that any grazing, or new property has good biosecurity measures in place.  

    Its recommended you keep animals returning from grazing separate to the main herd for at least seven days after arrival. It also gives you time to check their health status and, if necessary, undertake any animal health treatments, such as drenching or vaccination.
