BIOCHECK® Biosecurity Plan
BIOCHECK® is a program run by members of the Australian Cattle Veterinarians - a special interest group of the Australian Veterinary Association Ltd.
The BIOCHECK® Biosecurity plan is designed to ensure that the farm has considered the major biosecurity risks and has appropriate risk management strategies in place.
The plan is largely based on the generic Biosecurity Plans that are available from the Animal Health Australia Farm Biosecurity website and should be read in conjunction with the resources that can be downloaded from www.farmbiosecurity.com.au
This plan is not an audited quality assurance program nor is it a guarantee against incursion by pests or disease. Rather it is evidence that the major biosecurity risks have been discussed and plans made to manage these which are appropriate to the individual farm.
Each risk is discussed and evaluated as per the below options. Where appropriate, comments can be included that describes how that property is managing the risks identified.

Remember – Vets discuss the risks with producers, it is up to the producer as to what they do to minimise their own risks.
