11 Odours Water pollution Carbon Noise Sources of on-farm risk Environment

12 Exotic diseases Endemic diseases Weeds Pests Biosecurity Sources of on-farm risk

13 Animal welfare Sources of on-farm risk Husbandry practices Production diseases Land transport Bobby calves

14 Occupational Health & Safety Sources of on-farm risk Skills Knowledge Equipment Zoonotic diseases

15 How do dairy farmers manage these risks? As part of their everyday activities Structured risk management programs –identification –analysis –evaluation –treatment –monitoring –review Performance measured against agreed standards

16 Verification of compliance Self assessment Environmental protection agencies Local government officials Dairy company field officers State dairy food authorities Private veterinarians State government DPI’s Animal welfare agencies Vocational trainers

17 Dairy assurance activities Regular Checking and Continuous Monitoring Line Management Review Third Party Audit SCOPE AND FREQUENCY Day to day - embedded in work place activities Control Self Assessment – driven by risk profile and manager’s span of control Internal and External auditing – sampling and verification, aimed at Policy and Standards compliance, and identifying system weaknesses
