Mycoplasma bovis

In the interests of the current farming bio hazard issues and to keep on the good side of our wonderful farm landowners please clean your footwear between events. We need to do our bit to prevent contamination of any type travelling between farms and waterways e.g. didymo and mycoplasma bovid.
Thanks, from the OT committee
