The petition states: ‘‘We the undersigned oppose new trading requirements, which are part of the National Ovine Johne’s Disease Management Plan 2012-2017.
‘‘We call for:
“There are key elements of the program that will severely impact on our members and we are going to fight this accordingly.
‘‘While we are not supporting this program as it currently stands, we will do our best to change it and inform sheep producers of its impacts.
‘‘It is our commitment to fight for producers’ rights and not allow unfair barriers to trade.”
