A Hawke’s Bay farm is seeing great results by giving their cows a ‘stress-free’ environment.
OSPRI says individual animals in three herds previously under investigation are now confirmed as infected.
There are now eight beef and three dairy herds infected.
Two additional herds are also now under investigation, with DNA strain-typing and movement assessments underway.
Investigations into two other herds reported last week have now closed. There are now ten herds being investigated.
A total of 53,449 animals have been tested since 1 November 2019. Just one herd has been cleared of the infection.
15 pre-movement tests completed, a further 24 pre-movement tests have been allocated to AsureQuality.
For infected herds, two clear, whole herd tests six months apart are required to achieve clear status
