About the webinar
Bovine TB is still the most devastating disease impacting our UK cattle herds today. Not because of the direct animal health and welfare impacts, the majority of reactors are otherwise fit and heathy animals, but because of the massive impacts a breakdown has on the farm business and the knock-on effects on animal and farmer health and welfare.
No one likes to think of what would happen if the worst were to occur and the farm suffers a TB breakdown, but understanding your risks and how to reduce if not eliminate them and being prepared as a business, for example understanding what your options are for getting beef calves off farm, could take away some of the stress and anxiety around testing and help your business survive TB.
After you have made your booking, you will receive a confirmation email detailing all of the webinar information.
