Exercise Tuckerbox


This report describes a desktop livestock tracing exercise undertaken by the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries (DPI) in April 2012. The exercise was named in honour of the legendary bullocky’s dog associated with the town of Gundagai which was the locality of the index property selected for the exercise.

This was an exercise only. The foot-and-mouth disease alert scenario on which the exercise was based is fictional. However, real data about properties and animal movements were used and some of this data is included as examples in this report. Personal information about actual premises and people is confidential.
