You are invited to participate in a research study which aims to understand the animal health management practices and communication and extension needs of sheep producers in Australia. Please note that to participate in the research you must be over 18 years old.
This research is a subproject of a larger project on improved surveillance, preparedness and return to trade from emergency animal disease incursions using foot and mouth disease (FMD) as a model. This project is supported by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA), through funding from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources as part of its Rural R&D for Profit programme, and by producer levies from Australian FMD-susceptible livestock (cattle, sheep, goats and pigs) industries and Charles Sturt University, leveraging significant in-kind support from the research partners.
The research partners for this project are the Commonwealth Science and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Charles Sturt University (CSU), the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) and the Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, supported by Animal Health Australia (AHA).The project commenced in July 2016 and will conclude in June 2020.
