In 2018 each of the state agricultural departments in the north (WA DPIRD, NT DPIR, Qld DAF) has been holding post mortem workshops for cattle producers.
The workshops underpin the importance of biosecurity to the Northern cattle industry, encouraging producers to take an active role in initiating disease investigations.
