Source of Mycoplasma bovis outbreak still unknown


An outbreak of Mycoplasma bovis has been found in a South Canterbury dairy farm, raising concerns from other local farmers about their own stock.

It's the first time the disease has been found in New Zealand and the Ministry for Primary Industries still doesn't know where it came from.

So far there have been two community meetings about the outbreak and farmers say they've walked away feeling well-informed.

Hamish, Sarah and Richard spoke to farmer Bryson Hargreaves, from the Waitaki area.
