Bovine Break-Through: New Zealand is on the verge of wiping out a cattle disease

New Zealand is close to ridding its farms of a painful cattle disease, Mycoplasma.

After four years, hundreds of millions of dollars and more than 175,000 cows killed, there is only one farm in the country left to be cleared of the bacterial disease.

The country’s Ag Minister says it has been a traumatic experience for farmers because healthy cows had to be killed if the disease was found on the farm.
