ICOS has made a written submission to the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine on the development of a new National Farmed Animal Health Strategy. The ICOS submission addresses a number of key issues including the range of services provided by dairy co-ops in the area of animal health, the role of bodies with statutory and non-statutory responsibilities, the availability of veterinary medicines, the role of livestock marts and the animal feed chain.
