1000 to get TBsurvey

MORE than 1000 cattle producers are to receive a TB survey from the VLA and MDC. The confidential survey, which is being posted to dairy farmers, aims to identify management factors which producers can adopt to reduce the chances of their herd becoming infected with TB. The MDC hopes all producers receiving the survey form will spend a few minutes ticking the answer boxes.
