A Northland farmer has been banned from owning cows for two years after being found guilty of a range of animal welfare offences.

Kenneth Charles Wood, 62, was sentenced at Whangarei District Court last week and fined $5000.

Wood was prosecuted by the Ministry for Primary Industries after it received a complaint about the state of some of the cattle on his Oruawharo property.

MPI said it was an avoidable situation where animals had suffered unnecessarily as a result of Wood failing to ensure his cattle’s physical health and daily needs were met. 

Wood was also ordered to pay court and vet costs of $655.
