    Re: Would it be in farmers interests to pay for TB control?

    TB control measures are currently winning in the less well established areas & failing in worst affected counties of England & Wales.

    Largest cattle county in England is Devon and in that county TB control measures are currently failing. Not doing too well in Cornwall, Avon, Wiltshire and Somerset either!


    The following shows the TB situation by region.


    The following shows the TB situation in South West England.


    The following shows the TB situation in Wales.

    Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.

    This shows the progress being made in tackling TB since the 25-year eradication strategy was first published in 2011.



    RBCT badger cull only reduced OTF withdrawn (ie confirmed) incidence. The culls made no significant difference to OTF suspended (ie unconfirmed) incidence.

    This seems crazy to me.

    Why are they not being sued for aiding the spread of a grade 3 zoonotic pathogen?

    TB reached Wytham Woods in 2014.

    Why Liz Truss's vow to tackle bovine TB means so little.

    Why is the preference to address events after they happen?

    It's the Ostrich syndrome.

    Why haven't the 'powers that be' been testing the badgers that have been shot to find out the percentage of carriers,why don't they test round setts to find out if they are infected? Same reason - what the eyes don't see the heart won't grieve over

    Re: Would it be in farmers interests to pay for TB control?

    Across the whole of England the results of routine herd tests in 2014 and 2015 showed that as herd size increased, the risk of an animal being disclosed with TB decreased by a factor of about 3.

    DEFRA and high profile scientists such as Rosie Woodroffe report that the reproductive rate clearly increases as herd size increases. In fact Dr Malla Hovi the head of TB policy in APHA, recently reported in the Senedd in front of a Welsh committee that the reproductive rate increased by a factor of about 4.

    How can the risk reduce whilst the reproductive rate increases?
