The man appears on June 25 in the Magistrates Court of Toowoomba.
The discovery comes after the police initiated several house search orders and charged 14 people for the incident at the Brisbane farm.

The Millmerran incident was just one of many animal rights protests on farms and slaughterhouses, which prompted the state government to empower police and biosafety officers to give on-site fines of $ 652.17 to punishers for prohibited land.
As part of their investigation, the Queensland police released images of the incident on Friday to bring those involved to the fore.
& # 39; If you are in this view, you are encouraged to contact the police, & # 39; said Detective Troy Pukallus of the Major and Organized Crime Squad (Rural).

& # 39; This is your only chance to do it of your own free will before we come to you. & # 39;
The police have also warned the general public about the severity of the forbidden site and discourages those who may think about trying something similar.
& # 39; Unauthorized access by animal activists to places where animals are kept in Queensland occurs without regard to animal welfare, biosafety, food safety and health and safety risks in the workplace, & # 39; Detective Pukallus said.
& # 39; This activity will lead to prosecution & # 39 ;, he said.
Anyone with information about the Millmerran incident has been urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000.
