Small Farms Association - Bovine TB and Politics Print this pagePrint this page

The Small Farms Association's view on TB is that there should be a concerted effort to put in place a nationwide TB vaccination programme for cattle, which could be administered by vets, on behalf of DEFRA, for the first time following a negative herd TB test. Future boosters to be administered, by DEFRA vets, as and when necessary. The government should continue to look for a vaccine which does not cloud the TB test results, but this problem should NOT prevent something being done now to avoid the huge costs and waste, not to mention the distress and economic problems to cattle farmers.
