The outbreak of Mycoplasma bovis has highlighted the importance of on-farm biosecurity. When attending a field day please ensure you have clean footwear and vehicles are not carrying fresh muck or vegetation. This will help reduce the risk of spreading weeds, pests and diseases onto our host farms and across our country. To stay clean, we need to be clean.
