B+LNZ reacts to new animal health resource
Beef + Lamb New Zealand (B+LNZ) has urged every sheep and beef farmer to make use of a brand new animal health resource to review its livestock performance and animal health.

The resource, produced by several organisations including the Ministry for Primary Industries and the New Zealand Veterinary Association, aims to identify risks and ensure that expenditure on animal health is targeted to optimise profitability.

Available online, the Sheep and Beef Cattle Heath Review is divided into three sections: Preparation and Performance Review, Risk Assessment and Disease Management Review and Actions.

B+LNZ said that animal health was a “key driver​” of productivity and profitability for farms and the resource covers an array of issues, including identifying opportunities, disease management and cost benefit analysis.

The resource essentially helps farmers turn data into valuable information that can be used to underpin sound decision-making​,” said B+LNZ’s senior advisory for biosecurity and animal welfare Will Halliday.

The information generated is invaluable when it comes to communicating with vets, farm consultants and staff, particularly when undertaking recommended regular animal health planning carried out in conjunction with a vet​.”
