Burnett Livestock & Realty commenced business in September 2007, previously operating as Noel Anderson & Co and Biggenden Real Estate.
The change to the new name was made to better capture what we do and where we do business. Burnett Livestock and Realty comprises the Cattle Sales, Livestock Sales Team and the Real Estate & Property Sales Team, both of which are supported by efficient and reliable administration staff. Our dedicated team members always try to accommodate clients’ needs and go the extra mile for them. We deliver results not rhetoric.

CHANGES TO LPA – 1 OCTOBER 2017
WHAT ARE THE MAJOR CHANGES YOU NEED TO ACT ON?
From 1 October 2017, animal welfare and biosecurity will be included in the LPA program.
DO YOU NEED A BIOSECURITY PLAN?
Yes. If you want to continue accessing National Vendor Declarations you will need a biosecurity plan. As of 1 October 2017 it is a compulsory part of your accreditation process.
WHERE CAN YOU GET A BIOSECURITY PLAN FROM?
All resources are web based – we do not have copies available for distribution at our office. If you need a hard copy see below. Alternatively, there are multiple available online (links below). Pick the one that suits you and your operation.
For the tech savvy there is also a FREE Biosecurity app | http://www.farmbiosecurity.com.au/farmbiosecurity-app/

You keep it on file and use it as a resource to improve your operation and amend procedures if needed. If you get audited you may need to produce it.
WHERE TO ACCESS THE ANIMAL WELFARE INFORMATION ON YOUR OBLIGATIONS?
As part of your commitment to the LPA program you agree that you will have a version of the Standards and Guidelines that is accessible on-farm and is kept up to date. Whenever a new edition of the document is released, a fresh copy should be downloaded and read by the people responsible for livestock husbandry on your property, then stored where it can be accessed again from time to time as needed. You can access this information from Meat & Livestock Australia – follow this link https://www.mla.com.au/meat-safety-and-traceability/red-meat-integrity-system/about-the-livestock-production-assurance-program/seven-lpa-requirements/animal-welfare/

From 1 October 2017 when producers renew their accreditation there will be a $60 ex GST charge every three (3) years. This will be payable to Meat and Livestock Australia who administer the LPA system.
