BVD eradication programme in Northern Ireland rolled out #beefgb

Seamus O’Kane, president of BVA Northern Ireland Branch, says: “The introduction of compulsory BVD testing is a part of the joined-up DARD, profession and industry approach which is crucial for the delivery of a successful BVD eradication programme in Northern Ireland.

 

We welcome the commitment to disease control and hope we will see similar successes as we did with our ‘officially brucellosis free’ declaration.”

 

Sean Wensley, president of BVA, adds: “Vets and farmers have been well engaged with the process so far to control BVD and keen to see it progress; the announcement for a compulsory BVD testing scheme was made more than two years ago so we are very pleased to see the roll out now of the legislation.”
