Bovine TB screening
The National Beef Association has welcomed the imminent roll-out by Defra of gamma interferon (IFN-g) screening for TB, claiming the adoption of the blood test is a positive move for farmers.
"It will be particularly useful for breeders in low-TB areas who have been hit with the disease, possibly through translocation, and who want their herd swept for reactors that have been missed by the skin test so they can be clear of movement restriction much quicker than they otherwise would be," claimed NBA chairman Duff Burrell.
