Cattle tick control in NSW


Controlling and eradicating cattle ticks is extremely important to the viability of the cattle industry in north-eastern NSW.

The tick can carry the disease ‘tick fever’, which can kill cattle and has the potential to cause significant economic damage to the beef cattle and dairy industries of NSW.
