|Title:||Towards a national livestock disease model||Contributor(s):||Happold, Jonathan (author); Garner, Graeme (author); Miron, David John (author) ; Sajeev, Abudulkadir (author); Kwan, Paul H (author); Welch, Mitchell (author)||Publication Date:||2010||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/10419||Abstract:||A regional spatial simulation model for foot-and-mouth disease (AusSpread) has been used in the development of FMD preparedness and response policy in Australia for some years. While the AusSpread model provides great insight at a regional level, it is not capable of providing a national perspective on the potential size and distribution of disease outbreaks. A national perspective is particularly important in a country such as Australia, where livestock production practices, climate and environment differ substantially in different regions. In addition, complex and long-distance movements of animals within and between jurisdictions occur as part of normal production and marketing systems. Building on an earlier collaboration with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries & Forestry (DAFF) is working with the University of New England (UNE) to develop a spatial simulation model of livestock disease on a national scale.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||FMD 2010: Foot and Mouth Disease International Symposium and Workshop - Integrating Science & Management, Melbourne, Australia, 12th - 14th April, 2010||Conference Details:||FMD 2010: Foot and Mouth Disease International Symposium and Workshop - Integrating Science & Management, Melbourne, Australia, 12th - 14th April, 2010||Source of Publication:||Poster presented at the Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) International Symposium and Workshop||Field of Research (FOR):||070704 Veterinary Epidemiology||HERDC Category Description:||E3 Extract of Scholarly Conference Publication||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 276
