FUNDING PACKAGE AVAILABLE TO HELP STAMP OUT BVD
Posted on 29 June 2018

DEFRA has allocated 5.7 million pounds of funding to tackling Bovine Viral Diarrhoea, which currently costs UK farmers 60 million pounds per year through mortalities, infertility and poor performance.

This fund will allow farmers to apply for one to one advisory visits by a veterinary practitioner. The programme will also assist to share information between farmers to gain knowledge of best practice in order to eradicate the disease from cattle herds.
