Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor took a break from the beehive for a trip to one of New Zealand’s most exiting agricultural events of the year.

With Mycoplasma bovis still under strict observation from MPI, Mr O’Connor says he wants to ensure that the rural community is equipped with the correct facts.

M bovis, a new NAIT system, and shearing safety are all on the agenda with Rural Exchange hosts Hamish McKay and Richard Loe.
