Victoria’s Biosecurity System
Biosecurity threats pose a significant risk to the productivity and prosperity of Victorian agriculture. A well-resourced and functional biosecurity system is essential for the protection of Victoria’s agricultural industries from exotic pests and diseases.
The VFF advocates for continued investment in Victoria’s biosecurity system. Only through continued investment can Victoria’s agricultural industries be protected from the threat of diseases such as Foot and mouth disease, Q Fever, Bluetongue virus and Anthrax.
The Victorian Government is currently reviewing Victoria’s biosecurity system. More information can be found at Strengthening Victoria’s Biosecurity System.
