New Zealand’s biggest farm, the 180,787 hectare Molesworth Station, is part of a vast, mountainous landscape in the northern South Island high country. It is one of the last large farmed areas where possums and other vectors of bovine TB are still being brought under intensive control.
Molesworth is the focus of a nine-year programme of targeted possum control and wildlife surveillance, beginning winter 2017.
