Animal disease and defect

What is animal disease and defect data?

Animal diseases and defects are reported by meat inspectors and or veterinarians as a part of the carcase post-mortem inspection. LDL currently provides feedback on 19 of the conditions collected through the National Sheep Health Monitoring Project. Data is also available from the Enhanced Abattoir Surveillance Program, see factsheet for more information. 

Shortly, LDL will also include animal disease and defect reporting for beef carcases. Watch this space!
