Abstract

As part of a project to improve animal health surveillance, a cross-sectional study was undertaken to characterise the vulnerability of Australian livestock producers to harm from exposure to, and spread of an emergency animal disease. This paper explores current levels of trust around animal health monitoring and reporting within the beef and sheep industries. An online survey was developed and distributed through government and industry groups nationally. Data were analysed descriptively and logistic regression analysis was used to characterise producers.
