Listen: Biosecurity threats unacceptable says Craig Wiggins

Craig "Wiggy" Wiggins spoke to Dom George on The Country Early Edition today about the recent biosecurity woes facing rural New Zealand.

The discovery of mycoplasma bovis on a South Canterbury farm is just another example of MPI's "ambulance at the bottom of a cliff" handling of biosecurity threats according to Craig.

"If we don't look after the grass roots of New Zealand, we're going to have some real problems financially, socially and development-wise in this country, " says Wiggins.
