The TFGA have just embarked on our second year of this 4 year project, funded by the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment.
In collaboration with Biosecurity Tasmania, the TFGA are working to not only educate farmers and the wider community about on-farm biosecurity risks, but to illustrate simple strategies to protect our Tasmanian farms.
A database will be developed outlining what is being produced in Tasmania to assist the government and industry if and when an outbreak occurs. Through continuous and effective communication, we aim to improve and encourage positive culture change towards farm biosecurity.
For further information regarding the project or on-farm biosecurity in general, please contact Jacky Sands on 03 6332 1800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
