The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) will hold the 2018 Western Australian Horticulture Update at Crown Convention Centre on August 16 and August 17.

The border controls outlined below for Johne’s disease (JD) susceptible stock entering Western Australia were implemented by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (now the Depar

The demand for high value agricultural produce continues to increase and provides great opportunities to Australian agriculture.

Western Australia's (WA) climate has changed over the last century, particularly over the last 50 years. Average temperature has risen about 1°C.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, Western Australia, has produced a visual guide to assist in carrying out a thorough ruminant animal post-mortem.

Western Australia exports about 80% of its livestock and livestock product annually.

Vaccines can prevent a wide range of diseases that cause reduced production, fertility or death in cattle and economic losses to Western Australian producers.

The aim of the eConnected Grainbelt Project is to make a real difference to growers’ businesses and the grains industry.

The eConnected Grainbelt Project is pleased to announce formal approval has been granted to extend the project by 12 months, with a new end date of 30 June, 2019.

As part of the successful Getting Value from Farm Data Networks grower group forum at Technology Park, Bentley, four high quality speakers presented to about 70 attendees.

Western Australia is free of many diseases that are endemic to other areas in Australia.

Johne’s disease (JD) is an incurable infectious disease of ruminants including cattle, sheep, goats, alpaca and deer. It causes chronic diarrhoea and wasting, which eventually leads to death.

WA horticulture industries are well positioned to capture the growing demand and opportunities in the overseas market.

If you run livestock, whether on a small scale or commercially, you need a biosecurity plan.

Managing farm biosecurity following a fire, flood or dry season is a balance of caring for livestock and paddocks while limiting the introduction of new pests, diseases or weeds onto the property.

Fire, flood and drought can result in large numbers of dead farm animals which need to be disposed of safely.

Nasal bots are the maggots or larvae of the sheep nasal bot fly, Oestrus ovis.

Sheep farmers can save money and time eradicating new lice infestations by taking simple biosecurity measures that become part of normal management programs.

SheepMAP is a market assurance program designed to provide producers with a source of sheep which are at low risk of having ovine Johne's disease (OJD). The program is a voluntary scheme.

Thanks to the eConnected Grower Group representatives who attended our successful Getting Value from Farm Data Networks forum, late last year.
