A workshop for farmers and primary producers providing the latest information for preventing crime on farms will be held 2pm - 4pm at the University of New England SMART Farm Innovation Centre, Weirs Road Armidale on Friday, November 30. 

The NSW Police Force Rural Crime Prevention Team will speak about the steps farmers can take to detect and prevent crime, new crime fighting technologies, how to report crime to police; and, what to do if a crime occurs. 


The Department of Primary Industries will present information on new innovations in DNA Testing for livestock identification for court evidence, and David Smith Ceres Tags, will showcase the smart ear tags for livestock with GPS for motion monitoring.

The latest research from the UNE SMART Farms will also be presented.

This workshop will also include some delegates attending a conference on rural crime and the law at the UNE Law School on the November 29 – 30. 

“This workshop will be a great opportunity for local farmers to meet up with other farmers as well as people from other countries with similar concerns”, workshop organiser Elaine Barclay said.
