BVD Bovine Viral Diarrhoea Update

Bovine Viral Diarrhoea (BVD) is a highly contagious viral disease of cattle caused by the pestivirus. It causes huge losses in terms of reduced herd health, fertility, production and abortion. It is estimated that over 90% of the national cattle herd have been exposed to the virus. Estimated costs of disease are between £13 and £31/cow/year. This insight publication looks at possible solutions for control and eradication in your herd.

Issued November 2018.
