A date is yet to be set for the trial of five parties linked to the running of Crafar Farms, who between them face hundreds of charges of animal abuse.

The parties' lawyers appeared in Rotorua District Court today where the case was adjourned until a further callover on February 21.

The five accused are Craig Coote (farm manager), Raymond Griffen (farm worker), Southland dairy management company MilkPride and company directors Murray Flett and Ross Cottier.

They have been charged with failing to prevent suffering, cruelty and ill treatment of animals.
