APPOINTMENT: Dr Jane Bennett is the new LLS vet for the Upper Hunter.Dr Jane Bennett has been appointed the Upper Hunter District Veterinarian for Hunter Local Land Services.
Jane has more than 30 years’ experience in mixed, equine and small animal practice in the Scone area.
Her background also includes teaching vet nursing with TAFE, a strong involvement with pony, swim and hockey clubs, and membership of the Scone Grammar School Board for the last eight years.
Jane brings a range of valuable skills and experience to Hunter LLS.
The employment of Jane enables a repositioning of existing veterinarian staff. Jim Kerr is now based at Tocal with Digby Rayward, and Lyndell Stone has moved to the Wingham office. Kylie Greentree continues to work out of the Maitland office.
These changes have been designed to ensure a continued high level of service delivery to ratepayers by providing a district veterinarian team that is able to continue to meet animal health, livestock production and emergency responses.
Hunter LLS now has a new office in Scone, providing local landholders greater access to services and advice in agricultural production, natural resource management, biosecurity and emergency management.
The new office is based at Scone TAFE campus, 2 Flemington Drive, and provides landholders improved support with a team of extension, field and customer service staff, including a district veterinarian, on hand.
The new office is equipped to provide a range of services including inquiries on rates, animal health issues, pest animals, stock permits, property details, stock identification (including brands and earmarks), Property Identification Codes and Travelling Stock Reserves, NLIS tags and stock signs advice on agricultural production, managing natural resources, biosecurity risks, management and preparedness; and emergency planning and recovery.
The existing Muswellbrook and Scone Hunter LLS offices have now closed, merged and relocated to the new office, resulting in a larger team of staff on hand and longer opening hours – 8.30am to 4.30pm.
Visit or call the office for advice and support on 02 6540 2400.
