The website farmbiosecurity.com.au is part of the Farm Biosecurity Program, a joint initiative of Animal Health Australia and Plant Health Australia managed on behalf of members.

The goal of the program is to help producers reduce the risks posed by diseases, pests and weeds to crops and livestock. The site provides information about on-farm biosecurity measures, which help prevent both endemic and exotic diseases, pests and weeds from entering and becoming established on farms. It encourages producers to identify risks to their livestock, crops and plant products, and to minimise those risks through good practices.
The Farm Biosecurity website is a hub of biosecurity information for producers. It provides materials to help producers implement good biosecurity on their property, including:

  • crop and livestock specific information
  • templates for checklists, records and signs
  • animal health statements and declarations
  • biosecurity manuals
  • videos on the six biosecurity essentials
  • a farm biosecurity planner and app
  • links to member and other useful websites
  • biosecurity related news and events.

In 2017, the Farm Biosecurity Program was awarded an Australian Biosecurity Award by the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, which recognises significant contributions to maintaining Australia’s biosecurity integrity.
