Tickets are now on sale for the TB Advisory Service’s inaugural conference at the Royal Agricultural University, Cirencester, on Wednesday 26 June.
During the one-day event, which is aimed at farmers in the High Risk and Edge Areas of England, attendees will learn what can be done to reduce the impact of TB on their farms.
The programme includes:
- An opening address from Professor Sir Charles Godfray, chair of the panel that reviewed Defra’s 25-year TB eradication strategy.
- Advice from vets and the TBAS on practical measures that farmers can implement to reduce TB.
- A look at how wildlife plays a role in TB transmission.
Tickets cost £30 for farmers and can be purchased at Eventbrite.
For further information, please call TBAS on 01306 779410.
The TB Advisory Service provides free advice on bovine TB to farmers in the High Risk and Edge Areas of England.
Cattle keepers can access bespoke, on-farm advice from an experienced TB Adviser through one-to-one farm visits where advisers can provide bespoke recommendations.
They also have a dedicated telephone helpline and provide “drop-in clinics” for farmers.
The project is funded through the Rural Development Programme for England.
