The third and final dung beetle species imported to Australia as part of the Dung Beetle Ecosystem Engineer project is finally here but how does it differ from the other two species and what does this mean for red meat producers?

CSIRO project lead Dr Valerie Caron said there was a distinct difference between this species and the two that preceded it.
