    New Zealand to cull 150.000 cows to eradicate outbreak of Mycoplasma bovis

    “The the pain and anguish they're going to go through is really hideous and we have to support them as neighbors”, said Katie Milne from Federated Farms

    New Zealand, which produces three percent of the world’s milk, announced this week its plan to cull about 150,000 cows to eradicate the disease Mycoplasma bovis. The largest mass animal slaughter in the country’s history will cost some US$ 612 million. If successful, it would be the first time an infected country has eliminated the disease-causing bacteria.
