CATTLE producers on the North Coast have a new resource available to assist them - the updated Beef Cattle Health for the North and Mid Coast of NSW which has been produced jointly by the district vets of the North Coast and Mid Coast Livestock Health and Pest Authorities (LHPAs).

North Coast LHPA senior district vet, Matt Ball, says the book has been around as previous editions for some time, and the aim of current edition is still to provide basic information on beef cattle health issues that confront producers on the North and Mid Coast of NSW.

"Our vet based in Casino, Phil Kemsley took on the challenge of editor of this fourth edition and has done a fantastic job in updating the information and expanding it to cover the Mid Coast area," Dr Ball said.

"The book was first developed in the early 1980s, with the second and third editions occurring in 1996 and 2002 respectively.

"During this time the amount of information available to beef cattle producers has increased significantly and beef cattle production has become more sophisticated.

"The range of veterinary chemicals and vaccines has likewise increased."

Dr Ball said the book is available as a download from the LHPA website now, with hard copies to be published over the coming months.

"Being electronic will allow for regular updates to be made, particularly for vaccines and animal treatments, as they change continually," he said.

"For those without access to the internet a hard copy can be requested from your local LHPA office and this will be provided once they are printed."

The Beef Cattle Health for the North and Mid Coast of NSW is available now for download from the LHPA website www.lhpa.org.au.
