Biosecurity Queensland advises that the start of the year is a good time to take stock of on-farm biosecurity. Here are some handy tips to get you started:
· Are your footbaths free from soil and organic matter? Note – dirty footbaths don’t kill Panama TR4!
· It’s good to have a farm gate sign but if there’s no number, people can’t call you. Make sure your number is up-to-date and easy to read.
· Are your zones working to keep clean and dirty areas separate? Do you need to trial some new zoning practices?
