All Welsh Cattle to be Tested for TB

02 October 2008

UK - An additional 3,500 herds will be tested over the next 15 months, concluding on December 31 2009.

According to Farmers Guardian, the TB Health Check Wales is a key stage of the Welsh Assembly Government’s £27.7m TB eradication programme and should provide a means of achieving a more detailed understanding of the current level and location of bovine TB across Wales, so that informed decisions can be made.

Tests which are already due within this period will be included as part of the Health Check.
