FutureBeef aims to assist graziers and the beef supply chain in northern Australia to increase production profitability and sustainability.

Our work is driven by the National Beef Production Research, Development and Extension Strategy, which aims to build wealth for those in all sectors of the beef industry, by being market-driven and sustainable. We do this by combining the relevant resources of the Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australian Governments together with Meat & Livestock Australia. This wealth of information is available in our Knowledge centre.

We are currently updating and re-organising the FutureBeef website, so it is even easier to navigate. If you have any queries while we are doing this, please contact us at info@futurebeef.com.au.

Enjoy exploring all that FutureBeef has on offer.

Johne’s disease and maintaining market access post June 2017

Most states in Australia deregulated Johne’s disease in 2016 and now manage the issue under the new Johne’s disease framework. Western Australia has elected to continue to manage Johne’s disease while the Northern Territory has implemented interim arrangements, specifying a JBAS 7 status as a minimum requirement for entry via Gazette Notice G3. This change to entry requirements means big changes for Queensland in how we manage Johne’s disease going forward.

During this webinar, Rachael O’Brien (from the Livestock Biosecurity Network) discusses the current situation and what producers need to do to maintain market access post June 2017 to Northern Territory markets. In this webinar you’ll hear about:

  • The current Johne’s disease situation
  • What is needed to retain market access
  • How you can implement an on farm biosecurity plan.
