PestSmart Roadshow - Charleville

Below are details on IACRC field days. 

 

From a wild dog perspective, the challenge for landholders attending these days will be how they use this information in working with their neighbours and rural lands officers to achieve cost effective broad scale dog control. 

Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre PestSmart Roadshow - Qld dates

The Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre is bringing the PestSmart Roadshow to a place near you in 2012.  Includes updates research and management developments to control wild dogs, rabbits, foxes, feral pigs and carp.

The PestSmart Roadshow is carried out in conjunction with the IACRC partners Australian Wool Innovation, Meat and Livestock Australia and the Murray‐Darling Basin Authority.  

 The Roadshow will also showcase the PestSmart Toolkits – which is a national online collection of invasive species information. The IACRC encourages graziers, land managers and others with invasive animal responsibility to visit the website: www.feral.org.au/pestsmart/and examine the PestSmart Toolkits on specific invasive animals to guide them in policy, legislation, control tools, best‐practice management and implementation.
