The implications of Bianchi identities pertaining to the spacetime of relativistic ferrofluid with infinite conductivity and variable magnetic permeability are investigated. Some kinematical and dynamical corollaries emerging out of a preferred geometrical symmetry called an isometry with respect to the flow vector and the magnetic field vector are developed.
