BJD Biosecurity Survey

The Dairy ManaJD program, a voluntary herd testing program in which more than 90% of SA dairy herds participated, with over 70% of SA Dairy ManaJD herds were tested negative, based on whole herd individual blood tests and maintenance tests every 2 years.

Under the J-DAS program, these herds have a Dairy Assurance Score of 7 or 8. SADA is working with PIRSA, the Cattle Industry Fund and the dairy industry to support the continued delivery of the Dairy ManaJD program and the enhancement of Dairy Farm Biosecurity practices.

If we could take a couple minutes of your time, to fill out this quick 4 question survey, so SADA can access all the relevant information to continue the great work SA has done to ensure our great BJD free status remains.

Farm powered: a survey about renewables on farm

Renewable energy and storage is a big issue for farmers in Australia right now, both on-farm and beyond the farm gate. Farmers for Climate Action are keen to better understand how farmers see renewable energy working for your business and your community, and how on-farm electrification can best benefit farmers and the energy system.

Your participation in our survey will directly inform the policies and solutions that Farmers for Climate Action will push for with governments, planning authorities and energy companies. We want to make sure farmer voices are front and centre in these conversations.
