As at 29 January, 120 beef properties have tested positive for M. bovis. While we are confident M. bovis is not widespread in the beef industry, MPI is carrying out a National Beef Survey to ensure this is indeed the case. Testing is being carried out on a sample of farms when they undergo TB testing.
To discuss the survey, we’re joined on this podcast by MPI’s Alex Crosbie (Beef & Drystock Programme Manager), Amy Burroughs (Milk Surveillance Programme Manager) and Mark Neill (Principle Advisor, Epidemiology).
