Understandably, anyone with an interest in the humble cow has an opinion on this choice of direction and numerous viewpoints have been shared readily over the past few weeks. Some claim elimination is impossible, given the spread of the infection, apparent lack of source and unreliability of testing technology. Many, particularly farmers, display limited confidence in the ability and resources of the Ministry SUPPORT: Lincoln University student and Rolleston resident Alice Watson talks about what we should prioritise following the Government’s decision on Mycoplasma bovis. for Primary Industries. Many more will readily lament on how wrong it is for the Government to provide such extensive financial support to the agricultural industry at the expense of the taxpayer. On the other hand, this choice may permit the only semi-decent opportunity New Zealand will ever get at trying for total extermination of this debilitating disease. Even so, this chance comes at a price. Deciding on eradication in favour of management will incredible stress and further heartbreak for those women and men with infected cattle. Some have already had herds culled, and I can’t even begin to comprehend how losing cherished stock, generations of careful breeding and whole livelihoods must feel. Whatever our individual opinion on the Government decision, supporting these farmers and their families should be top priority.

SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Wednesday June 13 2018 13 Readers respond to most of Selwyn escaping having chlorine put into its drinking water Alan Haylock – I am totally opposed to the chlorination of any public water supplies in Selwyn District. I would much prefer to see infrastructure updated or replaced to ensure the quality is maintained. There are hundreds of private wells in Selwyn and I would be very surprised if any of them are chlorinated, of which some are owned by elected council representatives or staff. There is at least one commercial bottling plant in Selwyn, – if they were to chlorinate their supply they would experience a huge reduction in sales making their operation uneconomic. The water quality is of a very high standard so why poison it. Suzie de Ville – Great just what we wanted – not. Tastes yuk. Heather Wilkins – Hope it is never made permanent. They tell us at CCC it’s only temporary – yeah right – bet it will be permanent, another chemical and then it will be fluoride I suppose. John Filbee – does stop cholera typhoid. Readers comment about what they would like to see in the district, following the district council’s Long Term Plan deliberations. Andrew Johnson – Get rid of the wind in Rolleston. Anne Harris – Rubbish and recycling for all ratepayers in the Selwyn district. Marie Carney – Less housing.
