Pivoting into eggs from M.Bovis cull | Morgan Campbell

Updated: Apr 28

As one of the first New Zealand farmers to go through the traumatic experience of culling their dairy cows due to the Mycoplasma Bovis eradication, Morgan Campbell from Waimate used her passion for animal welfare and subsequently built a free range egg business with a difference.

As one of our Change Maker’s this week, Morgan explained to Sarah:

  • How they have taken free-range eggs well beyond the minimum MPI standards after her experience in the dairy industry with the M.Bovis cull.

  • The Good Life hens have their every dietary needs meet with specialty crops planted

  • Re-homed at the end of their productive life. Morgan also gifts eggs to schools for kids cooked lunches.

  • Her life advice in dealing with tragedy explains it’s important to just keep getting out of bed everyday, as life gets better.

“We are free-range but also a no-kill operation where all the birds get rehomed, after what happened to our girls (cows culled due to M.Bovis), they were not getting killed,”
