DEPARTMENT OF PRIMARY INDUSTRY AND RESOURCES Page 9 of 18 Katherine Rural Review September 2017 Inside this issue: Livestock disease investigations.. 9 Disease investigation case reports ......................................................... 10 BHV5 can cause sudden death in young cattle .................................. 11 Review of the Cattle Tick Program ......................................................... 12 National Arbovirus Monitoring Program update ........................... 13 Northern Australian Biosecurity Surveillance project ..................... 14 Screw-worm fly ........................... 15 Livestock disease investigations The Department of Primary Industry and Resources (DPIR) provides a free disease investigation service to livestock owners for diagnosis of notifiable emergency, exotic and endemic disease, including zoonotic diseases. Berrimah Veterinary Laboratories provide free diagnostic testing for exclusion of notifiable disease for all disease investigations, and subsidies are available to private veterinarians for significant disease investigations in livestock. The Northern Australia Enhanced Disease Surveillance program has been introduced from 2017 to 2019 on a trial basis providing increased subsidies for cattle and buffalo disease events reported to and investigated by private veterinarians. This program recognises the higher costs and challenges associated with conducting disease investigations in more remote regions. During April to June 2017, 76 livestock disease investigations were conducted to rule out emergency diseases or investigate suspect notifiable diseases across the Northern Territory (NT). Figure 1 shows the number of investigations by species of livestock. Figure 6. Livestock disease investigations by species for April to June 2017 Berrimah Veterinary Laboratories processed 177 livestock sample submissions, including samples to substantiate proof of disease freedom certifications, for accreditation programs and targeted surveillance to support market access. The following case reports are a selection of field investigations of disease incidents during the quarter.
