A new farm in Canterbury has tested positive for Mycoplasma bovis. As part of the M bovis eradication programme, which began in 2018, around 180,000 cattle from more than 270 farms have been culled. MPI says the latest detection on a Banks Peninsula farm means there are now five current infected properties. M bovis programme director Simon Andrew says the new confirmed infected farm is a dairy grazing operation and is linked through ownership and animal movements to a confirmed property in the Wakanui area in Mid Canterbury.
