One Biosecurity Program

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:43): I seek leave to make a brief explanation before asking a question of the Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development regarding biosecurity.

Leave granted.

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI: One Biosecurity is an online risk management program that was developed in partnership with industry to ensure individual producers and farmers undertake on-farm biosecurity protocols as a second line of defence against exotic animal diseases. According to PIRSA, through stronger on-farm biosecurity One Biosecurity can make the industry less vulnerable to uncontrolled disease spread. My questions to the minister are:

1. How many livestock producers have registered for the One Biosecurity program in South Australia in total?

2. How many livestock agents, buyers, saleyards and abattoirs have registered for One Biosecurity in total?

3. How many livestock producers have registered for One Biosecurity since April 2022?

4. What has the government done to improve registrations to One Biosecurity since the detections of lumpy skin and foot-and-mouth disease in Indonesia?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:44): I thank the honourable member for her question. I am happy to take the questions on notice and bring back an answer to the chamber.
