How to protect your herd from Bovine TB

 

Bovine TB has recently been detected in the UK. Follow this guide 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.

Not having your foundations set up correclty will mean you are asking for a problematic build, that will likely cost you a lot of time and effort to correct.
