The general biosecurity duty and goat producers


People are expected to have a basic level of knowledge about the biosecurity risks they might encounter in their normal work and recreational activities.

All community members have a responsibility to consider how actions, or in some cases lack of action could have a negative impact on another person, business enterprise, animal or the environment. We must then take all reasonable and practical measures to prevent or minimise the potential impact.

Everyone who works with or owns animals has a duty of care to take all reasonable measures to protect the health and welfare of those animals.

Topics include:

  • Managing goat biosecurity
  • Farm biosecurity plans
  • Good biosecurity in practice

For more see the General Biosecurity Duty factsheet.
