OSPRI has created a framework of TB Management Areas (TMAs) that set out activity plans at a local level for the purpose of eradicating bovine tuberculosis in New Zealand
A large-scale possum control operation in the Silver Peaks area near Dunedin is an important part of the programme that will eradicate bovine tuberculosis from New Zealand.
OSPRI programme manager for the Northern South Island, Josh King, says wild pigs are great indicators of an area's TB status.
OSPRI has offered full support for the Government’s biosecurity strategy, announced by Minister for Primary Industries Nathan Guy today.
