A preliminary finding by two veterinarians from the Food Agricultural Association in Rome has revealed that Fiji's brucellosis outbreak re-emerged from a single farm in Tailevu that sold its stocks to a dairy farm in Wainivesi.
The two experts were in the country for two weeks and conducted an investigation on the cause of the re-emergence and how officials handling these cases could be assisted to prevent further spread.
Ministry of Agriculture spokesman, Joe Uluilakeba, told the Fiji Times according to the experts' finding, a good number of infected cows originated from a farm in Tailevu that sold its cows to a farm in Wainivesi before it closed down a few years ago.
He said this was only one of the findings "but there could be other causes".
A draft report is expected to be made available to the ministry today.
