Why do we need One Biosecurity?

One Biosecurity will help safeguard and promote South Australia’s $5.5 billion livestock sector. It will assist South Australian livestock producers to take stock, and benchmark, their biosecurity practices, make safer, more informed livestock purchasing decisions and contribute towards a higher overall animal health status to benefit trade and market access.

One Biosecurity will help address the growing challenges of increased consumer demand for product traceability by providing auditable data to support animal health status claims.
