2008 - Bovine tuberculosis

07 May 2008 publication


The UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) commissioned the Society to write a report on bovine tuberculosis.

The report identifies three priority areas – diagnosis, farming practices, and existing resources – in which we believe new or additional research investment could impact the control effort.
