TB Testing

Baby Calves

Baby Calves

We had a very busy day yesterday with a visit from our vet who had to inject all the cattle that we own (except for the very baby calves) to test them for any reaction to Bovine Tuberculosis. He will be back on Friday morning to “read” the test and see if we have any reactors which if we do will be very serious and very distressing for not only the animals but for us as well. It will mean getting rid of stock and then not being able to buy or sell (unless direct to slaughter) until we have a clear test which will have to be done again in 60 days time, and if not clear then again in another 60 days and so it goes on until clear. Fingers crossed for Friday.
