In response to the outbreak of Mycoplasma Bovis, and to support the nationwide programme of phased eradication, PGG Wrightson has implemented steps to assist our farming customers in the eradication of this disease. However, eradication of the disease is very much a team effort and we encourage all our customers to be mindful of the part that they can also play.
Below is a range of useful information and resources to assist our customers with Mycoplasma Bovis.
The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) is a key source of information about this disease, and PGW follows their updates closely.
We encourage you to visit the MPI website which has a wide range of information about the disease. You can also register for their regular updates there.
