Publication Guidelines

Animal Health Express and Stock Health Monitor

Our monthly electronic newsletter, Animal Health Express (AHA Express) provides subscribers with the latest company news, events and animal health information.

Our biannual print and digital publication, Stock Health Monitor (SHM), equips Australia’s alpaca, cattle, goat and sheep producer communities with the latest information on avoiding, managing and controlling livestock production conditions.

Both of these publications contribute to the knowledge of those working in the agricultural industry and in turn, the strength of our animal health system – and we would love to feature your work! Anyone involved in the animal health sector is encouraged to submit articles about their achievements, research or innovations in agricultural production, a personal profile or an opinion piece.
