Producers in northern Australia have a new point of contact for biosecurity advice, working from Darwin to the benefit of the livestock industry across the north.
Jess has a good deal of experience from her prior role within the Australian Government’s Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, predominantly focused on live exports.
LBN as a company ceased its operations effective 30 June 2018.
From An Announcement From Our CEO prior to the closure:
I’m pleased to report that while the livestock industry bodies search for a long-term, sustainable model for extension services, Animal Health Australia will be delivering some biosecurity extension services, complementing the existing AHA Farm Biosecurity Program. Current LBN staff will be delivering these services, so I would encourage you to keep in touch with your relevant Biosecurity and Extension Manager. The managers can be contacted via:
- Jess Rummery (Northern Australia): 0499 077 213
- Rachael O’Brien (Queensland): 0418 722 461
