Members of the Oaklands Park Community farm await the arrival of the MAFF slaughter teams.  Their farm was marked down as contiguous to a suspected case and  consequently faced the slaughter of their organic  Shorthorn  dairy herd as well as their pedigree sheep..In the  end  so many local people turned up to support them that the MAFF officials decide to make a special case and their animals escaped the  cull.
