    Bovine TB question

     Hi, I have been asked a question about TB movement restrictions by a friend and am having no luck finding an answer online so wondered if someone on here might know?

    The question is: If a farmer owns land and grazes cattle there which can only be accessed by right of way accross a field owned by another holding which is under TB restrictions, how would they (original farmer) stand about moving cattle accross this restricted field (I presume by trailer)?

     

    Thanks

    I wouldn't think there would be any problem.  Most probable means of transmission would be by nose to nose contact and or badgers spreading TB whilst the cattle are grazing in the adjoining field.  If cattle are in contact there will usually be extra testing anyway. I'd cut silage/hay or graze sheep on that field until the TB problem is sorted out.  Hoping all works out clear as it is a lot of hassle.

    Hi Justme, more than likely the cattle in question would have to be pre-movement tested in any case, but that could be just Wales. Otherwise like Phil says, no problem as they wouldn't come into contact with the cattle under restrictions.

     Thanks for the replies :)

    I was'nt so much concerned about the cattle catching TB as the legaslative implications of crossing land under restriction, glad to hear it shouldnt cause a problem so I will pass that on!
