biosecurity: pigs, poultry, pest plants and industrial hemp

28th October, 2019

Are you a current or aspiring pig, poultry or hemp producer?

Backyard and small-scale pig and poultry production can provide a fantastic way to produce food on smaller lots.

But do you know your backyard layers or your pet porker could have a dark side? Are you aware that pigs and poultry could be at risk of introducing livestock diseases to Australia, and even transmitting diseases to you and your family?

And with an increase in interest around hemp production, what do you need to know before you grow?

Planning in advance for biosecurity risks plays a key role in protecting our animals, our farms, and our industry. Join the Agri Collective for a day of pigs, poultry, pest plants and hemp where we’ll provide pointers to minimise biosecurity risks for your farm.

The workshop covers:

  • Pigs and poultry – biosecurity and planning reforms
  • Pest plants – an integrated management approach
  • Industrial hemp – licencing, production, provenance and opportunities

Saturday 16 November from 10:00am to 4:00pm at Indented Head Community Hall, opposite 326 The Esplanade, Indented Head.

Register here for this FREE workshop – bookings are essential.

This farm focus event is a collaboration between The Agri Collective, Corangamite CMA, Bellarine Landcare Group, and the Australian Industrial Hemp Alliance.
