Livestock coming from the Cattle Tick Infested Zone in Queensland may be infested with cattle tick which is a notifiable disease in NSW. Livestock must be inspected and treated for cattle tick by an Authorised Officer and issued with a Biosecurity Certificate before entering NSW.
The NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) is working with agencies nationally in response to the current COVID-19 situation.
As part of this response, border controls are being implemented by Queensland to restrict non-essential travel to the state and help slow the spread of COVID-19.
The cattle treatment facility at Mt Lindesay is now closed as a treatment facility and will instead be staffed by Queensland police until further notice to assist in border operations.
Cattle tick inspection and treatment services for stock entering NSW will not recommence at the Mt Lindesay Livestock Treatment Facility.
The Kirra Livestock Treatment Facility is now closed as a treatment facility and will instead be staffed by Queensland police until further notice to assist in border operations.
Cattle tick inspection and treatment services for led and tractable stock entering NSW at the Kirra Livestock Treatment are currently closed due to COVID-19 and will not recommence.
NSW DPI remains committed to working with you to prevent cattle tick outbreaks in NSW and minimise the impact of cattle tick fever.
