Campaign Targets BVD

20 December 2010

UK - The National Farmers' Union’s National Livestock Board is working with the British Cattle Veterinary Association to raise awareness of Bovine Viral Diarrhoea (BVD) and to encourage individual farmers to control and eradicate the disease on their farm.

It is entirely possible to get rid of BVD, it just needs is the desire to do it, a basic understanding of transmission and a helpful vet.

Over the next few months, the NFU will be building up a series of information notes, including farmer case studies illustrating practical tips, hints and recommendations. 

The first document provides a basic description of the disease, a suggested four-stage eradication strategy and a description of the different tests. It can be found here: http://www.nfuonline.com/News/Campaign-targets-BVD/
