AGRICULTURE Minister John McVeigh and Chief Biosecurity Officer Jim Thompson met with graziers affected by the latest bovine Johne's discovery in Rockhampton yesterday.

Mr McVeigh said 40 properties were identified in the trace forwards from Peter Naylor's Marlborough property Hollins Bay, where testing had confirmed BJD in the herd.

Mr Thompson said he expected more properties to be quarantined out of the 13 still being investigated.
