Managing the Unimaginable

Greetings Readers

The Foot and Mouth disease devastation that is unfolding in the UK will be causing many NZ pastoral farmers to pause and consider how they would handle such a crisis if it occurred in NZ.

The urgent destocking and destruction of livestock on known infected farms would be upsetting enough but the continuing pressure as new disease locations are seemingly randomly found must be the ultimate in the pressure of the unknown. And all that those who aren’t affected can do is sympathize and wait for the crisis to pass.
