The Victorian Farmers Federation’s (VFF) Stock Sense Project is seeking expressions of interest from Victorian livestock producers to join the Stock Sense Network Group to help increase engagement in animal health, welfare and biosecurity.
VFF Livestock President Steve Harrison said it remains vitally important that livestock producers themselves have a say on these important issues for the livestock industry.
“Victoria is a leader in animal health, welfare and biosecurity and we need to ensure it stays that way.”
“We’re calling all interested livestock farmers to register their interest to help provide the important feedback needed to shape the future of our industry,” Mr Harrison said.
A total of ten Stock Sense Network Groups throughout Victoria will be established and will provide feedback on animal health and welfare and biosecurity issues specific to each region as well as the broader Victorian livestock industry.
The opportunity is open to all Victorian livestock farmers and anyone interested can register online or email the VFF’s Stock Sense team at stocksense.vff.org.au
Stock Sense is funded by the Cattle Compensation Fund and Sheep and Goat Compensation Fund and is proudly delivered by the VFF.
