Agriculture Victoria urges farmers and those working with livestock to be vigilant for anthrax. Prompt reporting of suspected cases may potentially reduce the contamination of affected farms.

Any unexplained sudden deaths in livestock should be immediately reported Agriculture Victoria Animal Health and Welfare staff, to your local veterinarian or to the 24-hour Emergency Animal Disease Watch Hotline on 1800 675 888.
