m. bovis update 21st September

A North Otago dairy farm has been confirmed as an Infected Property. The farm is connected to known IPs through stock movements. Tracing work from these farms is now underway.

In the same week, one more previously infected Southland farm had its IP status removed. After the infected stock was depopulated, the farm completed its 60-day stand-down period during which it was cleaned and disinfected. The Response Recovery team is now assisting the farm with returning to normal operation.
