Minimise poor fertility in beef herds

07.11.2018, Comments Off on Minimise poor fertility in beef herds, 南京夜网, by .

North Coast Local Land Services District Veterinarians have reminded beef producers of ways to minimise the risk of vibriosis – a common cause of poor fertility in North Coast beef herds.North Coast Local Land Services District Veterinarians have reminded beef producers of ways to minimise the risk of vibriosis – a common cause of poor fertility in North Coast beef herds.

Despite a very effective vaccine being available to prevent vibriosis it remains a common cause of poor fertility in beef herds in this area. Vibrio, also known as bovine venereal campylobacteriosis, is a venereal disease of cattle caused by bacteria that does not survive outside the reproductive tract.

Bulls have the potential to remain infected persistently without showing any signs of infection. In cows and heifers, infection causes early loss of pregnancy, altered oestrous cycles, delayed conception and occasionally abortion. Aside from this there are no other signs of infection.

When vibrio is first introduced into a herd the earliest sign may be a large number of heifers and cows returning to the bull. These returns to service are usually longer than the normal oestrous interval of 18 to 21 days.

Pregnancy rates in herds where infection has recently been introduced are usually very low, while in herds where the infection has been present for some time, pregnancy rates will be better, but still well below that expected in a non-infected herd.

Most cows eventually develop immunity to the disease and subsequently hold a pregnancy.

However, a small percentage of cows, less than 1 or 2 per cent, may remain permanently infertile. A small number of cows may also abort as a result of vibrio infection.

Swabs taken from the vagina of a sample of heifers and cows in the herd may be used to confirm a diagnosis of vibrio in a herd. Testing of bulls may also be used, using material collected from the prepuce of bulls. In cases where abortion has occurred, samples from the foetus can be used to confirm a diagnosis.

Ian Poe, District Veterinarian, said, “Factors which may increase the risk of vibrio in a herd include year-round joining; use of hired or shared unvaccinated bulls; poor boundary fencing and introducing females from multiple sources.”

To avoid vibrio, ensure all bulls are vaccinated with Vibrovax. Previously unvaccinated bulls should receive two doses four to six weeks apart, preferably with the second dose given shortly before joining.

Bulls should receive a booster every 12 months.

In herds where vibrio has been diagnosed, vaccination of bulls and females may be used to control the disease. Additional management practices such as a restricted joining period, culling empty cows and using young bulls may also help in control of vibrio.

For more information about the control of this bacteria in your beef or dairy herd contact your North Coast Local Land Services District Veterinarian.

Fluoridation of shire’s water for and againstCouldn’t be more for it. Truly about time. Sorry those against, but we really need it to help improve the dental health of the kids in the area.
Nanjing Night Net

David Rodgers

Fluoride is terrible for our health. I don’t think it has been studied enough and I don’t think studies are conclusive enough for it to be entered into our drinking water. I for one am allergic to it and so is my mother. I’m sure there are many moreout there with the same problems they just mightn’t realise it is fluoride that is responsible. Just brush your teeth and eat better if your main prerogative is dental health.

Kate Liston-Mills

I just want clean water. Sick of brown, dirty water coming out of my taps

Melinda Cleaver

Europe hasbanned it, it is all the chemicals that are causing such a high rate of cancer, dementia etc.We need change and fluoride is not it.

Judy Halloran

Good dental hygiene and a healthy diet comes before all else. Don’t depend on water alone to solve all the issues.

Sherry Lucas

I’m sure drinking it at the correct controlled amounts isn’t going to hurt. Otherwise it wouldn’t be added to the water.

Cody Backhouse

I’m sorry – the dentist in Merimbula noticed a lower IQ in children who had fluoride in their water? And she judged this how? With an IQ test in her clinic? By “observation”? Bring in evidence. Not observations and thoughts. We are not the only place in the world with fluoride in their water.

Corinne Markov

As someonewho practiced as a dentist in Bega for 27 years and who worked for one of the people who had the foresight to improve the oral, and dare I say general, health of Bega, byintroducing fluoride into the water supply in 1963, I truly hope fluoridation is introduced into all of the Bega Valley. I, for one, don’t want to go back to the bad old dayswhen I was admitting patients almost weekly to the Bega Hospital for full mouth extractions. These were invariably people from towns and farms outside of Bega.

Local Family Violence Unit is kept busy

07.11.2018, Comments Off on Local Family Violence Unit is kept busy, 南京夜网, by .

Wellington Family Violence Unit commander Sergeant Mel McLennan says the unit is working hard to keep victims of family violence safe.
Nanjing Night Net

HOME is where people should feel safest, but for many victims of family violence, it can be the most dangerous place.

Family violence is affecting people across communities.

Some victims will leave home with emotional scars; others will leave in a body bag.

On average, one woman is killed every week as a result of domestic violence, usually by her male partner in her own home.

Wellington Family Violence Unit commander Sergeant Mel McLennan said 80 to 90 per cent of offenders in family violence cases were male.

However Sgt McLennan made clear that men could be victims too.

“We do have male victims,” she said.

“Family violence perpetrators can be women as well as men.

“But statistically and historically, women are usually the victim.”

In Wellington Shire, almost 2500 cases of domestic violence were reported in the past year.

That equates to about 48 reports each week.

Across the state there were 71,000 incidents of family violence reported about 1365 a week.

A 2013 World Health Organisation report said intimate partner violence was the most common type of violence against women, affecting 30 per cent of women worldwide.

Sgt McLennan said people often associated family violence with physical violence, but family violence could take many forms.

Verbal abuse, controlling and manipulative behaviour, sexual assault, rape including marital rape neglect, financial abuse, child abuse, elders’ abuse, animal abuse and blackmail are all forms of family violence.

And this is far from a complete list.

“Anything that makes another person’s safety feel jeopardised can be considered to be family violence,” Sgt McLennan said.

“We strongly encourage anyone that feels they are the victim of family violence to come to us or ring us.”

A dedicated Family Violence Unit was introduced at the Sale police station in August last year as part of a state-wide rollout.

Since November 2011, Victoria Police has tripled the number of family violence teams across the state, with 32 now implemented.

Sgt McLennan said family violence had been identified as a significant issue needing urgent police attention.

“Victoria Police’s response to family violence has certainly altered over the last few years,” she said.

“We’ve identified that it’s a huge issue that impacts upon the community, so we are trying to better our response and that should also be encouraging people to come forward.”

Sgt McLennan took over the role of unit commander in August this year and will hold the position for 12 months.

She said working with victims of family violence could be confronting, but said it was worth it to help protect victims.

“You’re dealing with victims and you’re achieving things on their behalf, so yes I think it is (rewarding),” she said.

“This is all about holding perpetrators to account.”

The unit comprises two dedicated Family Violence Unit officers and workers from the Department of Health and Human Services.

They work primarily with high risk families, repeat victims and reoffending perpetrators.

“Family violence impacts upon children as well, so the Family Violence Unit specifically deals mostly with high risk repeat victims and recidivist offenders,” she said.

“Where children are involved in those families, we work closely with the Department of Health and Human Services Changing Family Futures team.”

Sgt McLennan encouraged victims of family violence to speak up, but said she understood taking that step was never easy.

It is never as simple as just walking out the door.

There are many factors which prevent victims from leaving.

“For a victim of family violence that has been living it for years and years and years, that’s normal, but once they get the strength and courage and they’re empowered to report, then you’ll find that just seems to be a weight off their shoulders,” Sgt McLennan said.

“I have seen it where a woman has been subjected to family violence over her entire married life, which is 33 years, thereabouts.

“It took one more incident to give her the courage to say ‘I’ve had enough’ and report.

“And we uncovered a history that had gone on since her early teens when she first met her husband.”

Police can issue family violence safety notices on the spot which can remove perpetrators from addresses.

Perpetrators who breach the safety notice and return to the address can face additional criminal charges because of the breach.

By removing perpetrators from homes, Sgt McLennan said victims often felt safer and empowered to proceed with intervention order applications.

“The safety notice only covers them for a period up to 125 hours, about five days, which then has to go to court and an order is made or not made,” she explained.

“If they are too fearful to remain at the address, for fear the perpetrator may return or whatever the case may be, we can certainly provide them with support services that put them in emergency accommodation.

“The protection of the victim and children is paramount, so we’ll take all steps necessary to ensure that they are safe and have the appropriate protection in place.

“If that means that we have to ring after hours services to assist in getting them to a safe house or a safe location crisis accommodation then that’s what we’ll do for their protection.”

She said the victims’ safety was their number one priority.

“If they are the victim or they know someone who is a victim then encourage that person to come and report it and they will be looked after,” Sgt McLennan said.

“We will do everything we can to make sure that they are protected.”

Tomorrow, November 25, is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

To stand up, speak out and act to prevent men’s violence against women, take the oath at 梧桐夜网whiteribbon.org419论坛/myoath-popup

People experiencing family violence or wanting information can phone Qantam Support Service in Sale on 1800 243 455.

Those facing an immediate threat should phone 000 immediately.

Domestic violence costing $21.7 billion

07.11.2018, Comments Off on Domestic violence costing $21.7 billion, 南京夜网, by .

SHOCKING STATISTICS: A new report, which is a public submission to the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence, estimates that if no further action is taken to prevent violence against women, the costs will accumulate to $323.4 billion over the thirty years to 2045. Violence against women and their children is costing Australia $21.7 billion each year, with governments carrying more than a third of the cost burden; as shown in the report “A High Price to Pay: The Economic Case For Preventing Violence Against Women” released today by PwC partner James van Smeerdijk, VicHealth CEO Jerril Rechter and Our Watch Director of Policy and Evaluation, Dr Lara Fergus.
Nanjing Night Net

The cost of pain, suffering and premature mortality constitutes the largest proportion of the total cost of all violence at 48 per cent, equating to $10.4 billion.

Governments, both State and Commonwealth, then bear 36 per cent, or $7.8 billion, in order to deliver health services, criminal justice and social welfare for victims.

Economically, $3.4 billion is lost either due to victims or other members of society funding for their own services or due to lost opportunity costs.

Prevention strategies have a proven effect on levels of violence.

If we engage the whole community in prevention and give them skills for respectful relationships, we will reduce the costs associated with violence.

“Putting a dollar number on a problem that is about the wellbeing and safety of human beings may seem a bit impersonal, but it’s important we continue to shine the spotlight on the shocking size of the domestic violence problem in Australia and its many social, economic and fiscal impacts including,” Mrvan Smeerdijk said.

The report, which is a public submission to the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence, estimates that if no further action is taken to prevent violence against women, the costs will accumulate to $323.4 billion over the thirty years to 2045.

“This is not just an issue for the community. It is a workplace issue and employers also have a role to play. Our report shows the magnitude of the problem, and it also shows the major benefits from investing in primary prevention,” Mr van Smeerdijk said.

The report reviewed what works in prevention and found two areas where there has been sufficient time and investment in evaluation to quantify the reduction in prevalence of violence against women, community mobilisation and individual and direct participation.

If a similar reduction in violence against women were achieved as has been the case for other community mobilisation programs, the benefits would range from $35.6 million to $71.1million over a lifetime.

“Although there is no single cause of violence against women, substantial evidence indicates that higher levels of violence against women are consistently associated with lower levels of gender equality in both public life and personal relationships.

For example, one recent major study found higher gender inequality predicted higher levels of intimate partner violence across 44 countries,” Our Watch police and evaluation director Dr Lara Fergus said.

“The intrinsic link between gender inequality and violence against women is now well understood and primary prevention offers a way to address them together.”

Prevention activities in a range of places including schools, workplaces and sporting organisations are essential in addressing the stereotypes and gender imbalances deeply embedded in our culture.

“This report shows that the benefits of improving equality between women and men will be felt by everyone in our community, not just victims, into the future,” VicHealth CEOJerril Rechter said.

Council accepts three way split

07.11.2018, Comments Off on Council accepts three way split, 南京夜网, by .

DESPITE the split of Wellington Shire into three wards, it’s business as usual for council, according to mayor Darren McCubbin.
Nanjing Night Net

Two weeks ago the Victorian Electoral Commission recommended the shire change from being unsubdivided to having three wards, each with three councillors.

The Northern Ward will cover an area from Rosedale, Maffra and Stratford to the High Country; Sale, Wurruk, Longford and most of the Lake Wellington shore will form the Central Ward, while the Coastal Ward will go from Gormandale, Yarram and along the Ninety Mile Beach.

The changes will take effect for the council election next October.

Wellington Shire Council had supported the retention of the current structure.

While disappointed in the VEC ruling, Cr McCubbin said councillors would “accept the umpire’s decision”.

“We will serve with the rules that are given to us,” he said.

“We, as a council, will completely take on board the results of the electoral commission.”

Cr McCubbin said the new structure would not create divisions across the shire.

“I like to think of it as one body, three vital organs,” he said.

“We have a heart, we have a lung, and we have the brain … none of those things can survive, none of those wards can survive, without the other two wards being strong.”

Cr McCubbin acknowledged strong community support to divide the shire into three wards.

“Council’s position was in fact in the minority there,” he said.

The size of Wellington Shire may have been a factor in the VEC introducing wards, according to the mayor.

“It is very difficult, perhaps, for a councillor to have responsibility over the entire shire, and to concentrate one’s efforts on a smaller region perhaps makes a lot of sense,” he said.

Cr McCubbin also pointed to a broader move towards a three-ward structure.

As well as Wellington, the VEC recommended Bass Coast and Baw Baw shires have the structure, which has already been in place in South Gippsland.
