TB Testing

Periodic testing for the prescence of tuberculosis in cattle is a legal requirement the frequency of which is determined by DEFRA in accordance with the county the herd is located in.

Recently there have been and will be more changes to the testing requirements - DEFRA will usually write to request testing but if in doubt it is best to contact them direct or by checking their website (see link below).

Further to changes in ministry TB testing, we are still carrying out pre-movement tests and private whole herd testing.

Further information is available from the practice or APHA
