Bovine TB: new eradication group

Bovine TB eradication group is being set up to make recommendations to Government about Bovine TB.

Defra’s Food and Farming group, the NFU, CLA and other animal health and farming groups will be represented in the Bovine TB eradication group, which will be run by Defra. The exact make-up of the group is still to be finalised, according to the CLA.

The Bovine TB eradication group will review the current TB strategy, study methods to control the spread of Bovine TB, and consider options to vaccinate cattle and badgers.
