FLAG – Farmer Leptospirosis Action Group

The Farmer Leptospirosis Action Group project team features representatives from Rural Women New Zealand, DairyNZ, the Deer Farmers’ Association, Beef + Lamb New Zealand, Federated Farmers and the New Zealand Veterinary Association.

Massey University veterinary researchers have joined the action group FLAG with the aim of gaining a greater understanding of leptospirosis and its effect on the New Zealand agricultural industry. With funding from the government’s Sustainable Farming Fund, Massey researchers have devised a Farmer Leptospirosis Action Group that hopes to find out if leptospirosis affects productivity.
