Cattle Health Schemes

Cattle health schemes are designed to help farms monitor and eliminate the five most important non-statutory diseases, which are prevalent in the UK and are costing many thousands of pounds on individual farms. There are several licensed schemes available and these are regulated and overseen by the Cattle Health Certification Standards (CHeCS).

This Farming Note looks at:

  • How cattle health schemes work
  • The benefits of joining a scheme
  • Which diseases are covered
  • Testing strategy
  • Available testing schemes
