Health of Animals 1990
Summary in English
A year of great activity and continuing change brought new challenges to the Health of Animals Directorate in 1989. Appropriate procedures were developed and implemented for the safe importation of large shipments of cattle, sheep and deer from New Zealand. Bovine embryos were imported from Austria, the first such importation from Continental Europe. Discussions were held concerning the importation of pigs from France and Ilamas from Chile. The decentralization of the issuance of import permits to the regional offices was implemented.
