Mycoplasma bovis community meetings - Bay of Plenty

February 7, 2020

We have two Mycoplasma bovis community meetings in the Bay of Plenty next Wednesday, 12 February to provide rural communities information about the following:

  • The current situation in terms of number of infected herds but within the region and nationally

  • A background on the eradication programme

  • Recent changes to the programme and future initiatives;

  • An explanation of the disease and how it is transmitted;

  • How M. bovis is identified and the process involved in becoming disease free

Both programme managers and disease experts will be in attendance and there will be the opportunity for a question and answer session at the conclusion of the formal presentations.
