Can you help improve animal monitoring?

Posted by Cindy Cassidy at Thursday, October 12, 2017

Can you help researchers in a study that aims to build farmer-led partnerships to improve animal health monitoring?
Participation involves the completion of an online questionnaire (around 30 minutes) that includes questions on animal health monitoring, preferred communication methods and information sources.
Researchers from Charles Sturt University, Australian Bureau of Agricultural Resource Economics and Sciences and CSIRO are working on this study as part of a Rural Research and Development for Profit project* aimed at improving surveillance, preparedness and return to trade from emergency animal disease incursions using Foot and Mouth disease as a model.
Thanks are extended to anyone who has already taken part in this survey. The contribution to this project is very much appreciated. If you have not, the survey will be open until October 20 and researchers would love to hear from you.
You will not be identified in any reports produces and will have the opportunity to go into a prize draw to win a $50 retail gift voucher.
