Initial setup

When you first login you will be asked for the type of registration. If you are a livestock producer, choose this option. Please enter your PIC and other details. If you have multiple PICs you can enter these.

Enterprise details

Enter the relevant enterprise details specific to your property. You can enter one or more enterprises for your One Biosecurity profile depending on how your business is structured. For example, if you have cattle and sheep, your will need to create separate cattle and sheep enterprise profiles.

Biosecurity rating

Begin the Biosecurity Rating Questionnaire, by using the “Start Questionnaire” function.

Make sure you read every part of each question. Comment boxes are provided for additional information.

A biosecurity star rating is assigned when the questionnaire is completed. A completed questionnaire becomes your property biosecurity plan and meets the requirements for Livestock Production Assurance (LPA) and Johne’s Beef Assurance Score (JBAS) accreditation.

The questionnaire and rating may identify additional measures to improve your on-farm biosecurity. You can edit your biosecurity questionnaire at any time to reflect improvements to biosecurity.

Disease risk rating

You may now complete one or more of the disease risk rating modules for specific endemic diseases. Each module will guide you through a series of questions regarding biosecurity best practice for specific diseases.

Depending on the answers, a classification of ‘independently assessed’, ‘self-assessed’ or ‘managed’ will be provided. If no information is provided, or the practices carried out do not meet the criteria for one of these categories, the system will default to ‘not currently classified’.

Properties with a risk rating of ‘independently assessed’ or ‘self-assessed’ are considered low risk properties for the presence of that disease, with high levels of biosecurity in place.
