Animal welfare when dealing with M. bovis
As we work to eradicate M. bovis from New Zealand, we’re also taking care of any animal welfare issues that arise.
- Remember, you are always responsible for the welfare of animals under your care.
- If your farm is under a notice, your animal welfare responsibilities do not change.
- Your vet can provide animal welfare advice and guidance.
Directions given under the Biosecurity Act 1993 do not override other legislation, such as the Codes of Welfare or Animal Welfare Act 1999 and its associated regulations (2016 Calf Regulations and 2018 reissue Calf Regulations).
