In January 2014 we will enter phase 3 of the BVD eradication scheme. This will require, along with a continuation of mandatory annual screening:
- A ban on knowingly selling/moving cattle infected with BVDV;
- Requiring the herd's BVD status to be declared before sale; and,
- Restrictions on untested herds/animals
Further information on these control measures from the Scot Gov website
Anyone with any concerns should not hesitate to contact the BVD helpline firstname.lastname@example.org / 0300 244 9823 (open from 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday).
