AgForce representatives have joined the frontline in Australia's biosecurity battle.

With the threat of foot and mouth and lumpy skin disease inching ever closer to Australian shores, these six volunteers have been trained by Animal Health Australia to work in the Liaison - Livestock Industry (LLI) function in an Emergency Animal Disease response. 

Industry representatives play a critical role during an emergency animal disease (EAD) response by providing industry perspective, essential advice and guidance on response matters.

Existing response arrangements acknowledge this role and the benefits it provides to response planning and reducing the overall impacts of the EAD on business continuity, and identifies areas within the EAD response structure to which industry is formally incorporated and invited to contribute to the response.

Our AgForce representatives are: Carl Greaves (HancockAg), Garth Christiansen, Cattle Board President Will Wilson, Adam Coffey, Ken Syme, Cattle Policy Director Ivar Bisseling.

AgForce congratulates everyone involved.
