JBAS & Cattle Health Statements
There has been some conflicting information out there on J-BAS and when and why producers should provide a Cattle Health Declaration.
ALMA has been working with Agforce and ALPA to develop an information package.
Chain of responsibility – are you in or out of the chain?
If you weren't able to get to one of the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) chain of responsibility (CoR) forums that were recently run in many states check out the NHVR website for information on the CoR or you can even view one of the forums here.
All saleyards should undertake the CoR GAP assessment tool survey which will help to determine different roles in the CoR.
