The NFU has called for farmers to start a fightback against the government’s decision not to sanction a badger cull in a bid to tackle bovine TB.

NFU Peter Kendall urged the farming industry to join together to give a “resounding message” about the decision by DEFRA secretary Hilary Benn.

Mr Kendall’s comments came at an NFU protest held outside DEFRA offices and Parliament in London on Tuesday, 8 July.
