Initial comprehensive health assessments take 1.5 – 2 hrs to complete.
Serious preventable injuries are prevalent in every type of farming enterprise including cropping, viticulture, horticulture, aquaculture and livestock production.
Poor health and injury impact not only the farmer but also the farm family, the productivity of the farm and the local community.
