Gordonton dairy farmers Josh and Emma Crawford love volunteering in their local community to help build a positive future.
Ospri has decided to lift the TB differential slaughter levy from next month by $1/head.
The control and eradication of bovine tuberculosis (TB) is a critical risk management initiative. It works to ensure TB does not pose a threat to the health of our cattle herds, those working with them or the viability of our dairy and beef export sectors.
DairyNZ is the majority industry investor in TBfree’s national tuberculosis (TB) control programme and this is the single largest investment from the milksolids levy.
However, DairyNZ’s concerns around the levy hike fell on deaf ears, it seems.
