"Thorough and balanced... timely and professional.."
“Ausvet recently assisted NSW DPI with some expert risk analyses to support disease control decision making.
They delivered a training program for our staff on risk analysis to assist in retaining NSW animal disease status. The training was pitched at the right level considering the attendees current knowledge level and the issue being assessed. It has enhanced our approach to transparent decision making based on systematic disease risk analysis. Ausvet also undertook some risk mitigation planning. They were thorough and balanced in their approach, including wider consultation to gather evidence. The report was delivered to me in a timely and professional way.
I greatly appreciated how this work was prioritised by Ausvet and the regular keep-in-touch communications from their team that kept the work on track.”

We will continue our work with them as we roll out our project. They have been helpful in a number of other areas in recent times demonstrating their depth of knowledge and contacts in agricultural and livestock production. We look forward to continuing our association in the future.”
