Reducing bTB Transmission on Farm

The spread of bovine TB (bTB) on farm can potentially be reduced by adopting certain management practices. Transmission risks for bTB include infected wildlife (particularly badgers), infected cattle (either within the herd or neighbouring herds), or land or machinery contaminated with Mycobacterium bovis (the bacteria which causes bTB). This publication summarises the options available to reduce TB risk. Although none of these will completely remove the risk and some may not be practical on your farm, they are worth considering.
