    During the coronavirus lockdown many farmers are still struggling with Mycoplasma bovis

    During the coronavirus lockdown many farmers are still struggling with Mycoplasma bovis


    The Government has decided to make a legislative change to minimise the tax implications for farmers impacted by that disease.

    Federated Farmers Vice-President Andrew Hoggard says this is good news for farmers as the agriculture sector is continuing to battle one crisis after another.

    He says the farmers who are really struggling are the ones having to deal with drought, Mycoplasma bovis and Covid-19.
