Farm Biosecurity

DPIPWE’s Biosecurity and Plant Health Branch and the Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association (TFGA) have produced a limited number of  “Please Respect Farm Biosecurity” farm gate signs.  Designed by Plant Health Australia, the signs are intended to help get visitors (in particular any non-regular visitors) to your property to do the right thing by you.  The signage should also help raise the profile of farm biosecurity and stress that people who are not farmers also have some responsibility to help maintain good farm biosecurity.  

These metal signs are 40 by 30 cms.  They are pre-drilled so will be easy to mount on or near entry gates.

DPIPWE is making these available to commercial farmers in the cropping and horticulture sectors  (limit of 1 per grower) and the TFGA is making them available to their members.  

To get a sign for your property please contact either:

Lynn Broos at DPIPWE with some evidence you are a commercial farmer (such as ABN or PIC, for example).  Lynn’s email address is Lynn.Broos@dpipwe.tas.gov.au or snail mail to her at  DPIPWE, PO Box 303, Devonport, 7310, Tasmania.

Nardia Deverell at the TFGA  - Nardia@tfga.com.au or snail mail to her at the TFGA, Cnr Cimitiere & Charles Streets,Launceston,7250, Tasmania.
