Coordinated Livestock Support and Disposal Package $5.75 million


The jointly funded Australian and Queensland Government (50:50) coordinated livestock support and disposal package is to reimburse Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, primary producers and local governments for the extraordinary costs of undertaking livestock welfare activities in impacted areas following the Northern and Central Queensland Monsoon and Flooding event (20 December 2022 - 30 April 2023).

The objectives of the coordinated livestock support and disposal package are to:

  • Cover the extraordinary costs of livestock welfare activities over and above assistance already provided to eligible applicants including but not exclusively:
    • Aerial surveillance of livestock
    • Aerial mustering of livestock to safety/areas of refuge
    • Transportation and supply costs of fuel, water and fodder positioning including staging
    • Costs of euthanising distressed livestock and burial/carcass disposal
    • Urgent repair to fencing for exclusion of stock from public areas
    • Urgent repairs to vehicles and equipment to enable recovery commencement
  • Ensure eligible organisations receive the necessary support for these additional costs, enabling the community to transition to recovery, and focus on becoming more resilient following the NCQ Monsoon
