Title Vets step up biosecurity skills Degree of recognition Regional Media name/outlet The Rural Media type Country Australia Date 10/05/16 Description VETERINARIANS have learned the skills to potentially prevent a biosecurity outbreak.
Vets, at the frontline of animal health and biosecurity, have built their skills in pathology and diagnosis at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Wagga.
Senior lecturer in veterinary pathology at CSU's School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences, Dr Panos Loukopoulos says the five-day course aims to help improve livestock health surveillance by enhancing the investigative and reporting skills of government field veterinarians.
"These vets work with farmers throughout the state and are likely to be the first to detect or diagnose outbreaks," said Dr Loukopoulos.
Almost 50 veterinarians have been trained since the course began in 2009.
