Efforts to eradicate Bovine Viral Diarrhoea (BVD) on farms south of the border have stepped up thanks to a £5.7 million project.
Government and farming industry patience has finally expired with beef producers who are failing to clean up herds infected with the scourge of Bovine Viral Diarrhoea (BVD).
The eradication of bovine viral diarrhoea (BVD) in Scottish herds is reliant on the removal of persistently infected (PI) cattle from all farms and crofts.
Scottish Government is introducing a new class of bovine viral diarrhoea (BVD) status for cattle herds later this month.
Strict movement rules to prevent the spread of BVD have been relaxed to allow the sale of cattle for slaughter at markets.
Time is running out for Scots beef and dairy producers to gain a free-from bovine viral diarrhoea (BVD) status for their herds.
Scottish beef and dairy producers have been urged to ensure their herds are free from Bovine Viral Diarrhoea (BVD) to avoid movement restrictions from summer 2015.
