Topic - New Zealand: Cull for Mycoplasma Bovis Control
Posted: October 13 2017 at 10:20pm By KiwiMum
It's very worrying. We keep 2 milking cows and a beef steer and there's a case of this disease about 30km from us. We're due to have the vet here in a months time, and then an AI technician, both of whom are constantly visiting other farms. 

I'm very concerned that they could have infected mud on their car wheels or their gumboots and so will be having a conversation about that with them before they come onto our property. 

There is no cure for this disease and the only option is to slaughter. We're very lucky as none of our neighbours have cattle, they all have horses and sheep, so at the moment we feel safe, but I'm feeling anxious about the visitors.
