Staff numbers prior to amalgamation were at 44, but by 1977 this had declined to 28. The Board Income of $262,953 came 38% from rates, 35% from subsidies, 23% from grants and 4% from other sources. In December 1980 the government abolished the subsidies and replaced it with a grant only system. In 1988 the Board amalgamated with the Ruahine, Taihape and Manawatu Pest Destruction Boards to form the South West North Island Pest Destruction Board.
