Animal Health Australia (AHA) works with the cattle industries, including the grass fed, feedlot and dairy industries, to develop and implement national programs to safeguard the health of Australia’s cattle population.
Beef cattle owners should use the National Biosecurity Reference Manual – Grazing Livestock Production on their properties.
Lot feeders should use the National Biosecurity Manual for Beef Cattle Feedlots on their properties.
Dairy cattle owners should use the Dairy Biosecurity: Healthy Farms manual on their properties.
