Time to tick survey off your to-do list, with deadline soon

CATTLE producers are being urged to have their comment on changes to the state's tick line.

With Monday's deadline looming, producers have been asked to provide feedback on the State Government's efforts to reform cattle tick regulations.

The reform was introduced to improve biosecurity outcomes across a number of agriculture industries.

The cattle industry has been asked to provide feedback on three proposed locations for the lick line.

Queensland's tick line was developed to stop graziers moving infected cattle on to clean properties.

Burnett Livestock & Realty's Stephanie Whitaker urged cattle producers across the Wide Bay-Burnett to fill in the survey.

"A cattle producer, if in a ticky area, which our area is, will find the market you send cattle to will be affected and your prices will also be affected.

"Whatever decision is made it will have an affect on your market and your prices."

Mrs Whitaker said preparing cattle to cross the tick line needed to become more flexible for producers but still maintain the high level of control.

Phone 132523 for more information or Burnett Livestock and Reality has copies of the survey.
