Disappointing bTB Test

We had a disappointing test last Friday (9th Sep) Three of our cows 4/5 months pregnant were positive tb reactors, they are due to be taken next week, this means weaning their calves two months early , there bellowing will be a constant reminder  of the realities of btb .

There is not a lot more I want to say just now, there is an overwhelming feeling of hitting my head against a brick wall and getting nowhere.

HOPE FOR THE BEST PREPAIR FOR THE WORST

 

We are tb testing again, reading test on Friday 9th.Having been placed under tb restrictions again back in June because of a suspect case at slaughter (now confirmed)

I have no idea what the outcome of this whole herd test will be, a clear test of a disaster. It’s a very anxious time and you can only hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

All I can say is the cattle look magnificent at the moment having had a summer of grazing grass, they are in fine condition.

Will update results after Friday.
