Notice of direction at feedlot

SHARE

An Anzco Foods Five Star Beef feedlot near Ashburton has been issued with a “notice of direction” from the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) after being suspected of having Mycoplasma bovis following an intake of 44 cattle from a supplier, the company said.

A notice of direction from MPI aims to prevent further spread of the disease. It means cattle can only move off the farm with a permit.

Anzco Foods is one of New Zealand’s largest exporters with an annual turnover of $1.45b and nearly 3000 employees globally.
