Biosecurity Policy

This policy sets out how Farm Owners and their Sharemilkers and Contract Milkers will manage biosecurity threats, such as Mycoplasma bovis and Velvet Leaf.   It will be going out with our Sharemilking (both Variable Order and Herd Owning) and Contract Milking Agreements from now on. 

It is available free for members ($20 (GST inclusive) for non-members) who want to add it to their current Agreements.
