Bovine TB Farming Note

The number of cattle slaughtered due to bovine TB has increased dramatically over the last ten years, causing devastation and huge economic cost to those dairy farms affected. In the UK there is strict compulsory routine and pre-movement testing in place as a method to reduce transmission of the disease.

This Farming Note covers:

  • History of bovine TB
  • Current measures to control bovine TB
  • Pre-movement testing rules and exceptions
  • Marketing milk and stock when under bovine TB restrictions
  • Compensation for culled stock

Issued March 2013.
