All landholders, whether on an urban house block, a 10ha hobby farm or a 1000ha cattle production enterprise have a responsibility to control pest animal species and prevent new pest animals from establishing on their land. This is part of your General Biosecurity Duty
Pest animals impact our economy, environment and community through predation on livestock, lowering the production outputs of agricultural lands or degrading our natural biodiversity assets.
- prey on livestock and wildlife
- increase grazing pressure on pastures
- damage crops and plants
- compete with native wildlife for food and habitat
- spread diseases to people and other animals (including stock and pets)
- damage fences and other infrastructure.
