Farmers are being asked to help shape understanding of bovine TB by taking part in a confidential survey.

The questionnaire, carried out by the University of Reading on behalf of DEFRA, hopes to compile a history of bovine TB since 1980.

The results will be made available to researchers to help create a better understanding of the disease.

The university wants to hear from a variety of people with experience of the disease, including farmers, agricultural advisers and auctioneers.
