Updated Cattle Health Declaration Now Available

An updated version of the Cattle Health Declaration is now available for use.
Key updates include:
• The owner and cattle details have been removed, as this information is captured on the NVD – it’s rare that a CHD would be used independently of an NVD, so these documents should complement one another.
• ‘Type’ of on-farm biosecurity plan is no longer specified.
• EBL questions have been removed as they do not apply in most instances.
• The JD testing questions are now easier to understand.
• Co-grazing with sheep has been removed as a question.
• A new explanatory note advises that co-grazing with any JD-susceptible species may be important to some buyers.
The updated CHD is available HERE and also the ALPA website.
