As exhibitors of livestock at Queensland Beef Expo, you are responsible for all movement and paper work of your livestock in relation to this event. If you are unsure of the documentation needed for movement of livestock in or out of Qld you can contact the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) call centre on 132 523 and speak to your local Stock Inspector/Bio Security Member. DAF advises that there should be minimal contact between livestock and members of the public to reduce bio security hazards. To eliminate risk please make sure there is a hand wash station and/or hand sanitiser dispenser on your stand. Ensure that all visitors and your staff use the facility when entering and exiting your display as this will help prevent risk of any contamination between breeds.
