Foot & Mouth Disease Threat

Rick Beasley Talks Foot & Mouth

We are very privileged to have a member whose extensive qualifications & experience in agriculture would be hard to surpass. Rick Beasley presented us with a fascinating presentation on the current Foot & Mouth Disease outbreak in Indonesia, and the potential devastating effect this could have on our own agricultural industry should it spread to Australia.

Rick touched on how the disease spreads, how it effects livestock, past outbreaks & the potential threat to Australia.

Thankyou, Rick, for a very interesting presentation.
