How to protect your herd from Bovine TB

 

Bovine TB has recently been detected in th UK. Follow this guidance on how to keep your herd safe.

Bovine TB (tuberculosis) is a chronic, infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis). It is mainly, but not exclusively, a respiratory disease caught by breathing in droplets of sputum (mucus coughed up from the lower airways) containing M bovis for example through close contact with infected cattle and wildlife.

We have introduced a new polytunnel cover to our range of polythene - Super Lux 50:50. It has been developed specifically for the UK climate by world leading crop biologists from UK universities.

The benefits of diffused light can vary from crop to crop, month to month and region to region. Very highly diffusing polytunnel covers perform well under clear skies in the summer months but in cloudy conditions and during the ‘shoulders’ of the growing season when sunlight is already diffused can lead to too much light being scattered out of the greenhouse.
