Australian Cattle Council : Yearbook 2009
CA TTLE COUNCIL OF AUSTRALIA YEARBOOK 2009 anthrax test kits There is a strong likelihood of the production here in Australia of a US-developed rapid-test kit for anthrax. If this occurs, it will markedly enhance reaction times by producers, veterinarians and authorities to an outbreak. The test reportedly provides results within 10-20 minutes in the field and in a manner safe for the operator. ConClusion These and other programs require an inordinate amount of time from Cattle Council of Australia’s Councillors and staff; their focus has been, is and will continue to be on the well-being of the sector as a whole. I would like to finish by honouring the enormous quantity and quality of work provided by John Stewart AM during his decades as Animal Health and Welfare Consultant to Cattle Council. Although John officially retired on 30 December 2008 he will continue assisting with the planning for an international Foot and Mouth Disease Symposium in Australia in 2010 and the full inclusion of bovine tuberculosis as a disease truly exotic to Australia from 2010.
