Mycoplasma bovis has been detected on more than three dozen farms since it was first detected in New Zealand a year ago, leading to the slaughter of about 26,000 cattle.
Mycoplasma bovis, bacteria that can cause mastitis, pneumonia, and other diseases in cattle, was first identified in the country in July and has since spread to at least 37 farms.

Farmer Chris Ford says he was very disappointed in the Government's decision. It has been found on about 40 farms so far, but 192 farms are likely to be involved in the culling.
Already, 26,000 cattle have been destroyed in the 10 months since the disease was first recorded in New Zealand.
The plan is set to cost $886 million, and will take place over the next ten years.
