Australian Cattle Council : Yearbook 2010
27 YEARBOOK 2010 CATTLE COUNCIL OF AUSTRALIA AN ENVIABLE POSITION WORTHY OF ONGOING INVESTMENT Australia has a right to be proud of its achievements in developing and maintaining the EADRA, AHA and the multitude of current and past animal-health programs. We are the envy of the rest of the world: industry, scientific and government representatives from other major animal- producing nations regularly remark on the partnership approach we've developed, stating their wish for it to be so in their countries. Regrettably governments around Australia are coming under increasing financial pressure. It would be an appalling shame if this trend converted into a reduction in their commitment to this most unique arrangement. We must continue seeing AHA programs as investments in our future and not as costs. Australia's ongoing trade access and reputation as a forward-thinking nation with sound animal-health programs overseen by an industry- government 'co-operative' benefits all of us. Justin Toohey Animal Health and Welfare Adviser Cattle Council of Australia
