The impact of multiple positive test reactors
Paul, dairy farmer, Dorset
Paul had a devastating TB test with 36 positive results. Nearly a quarter of his herd are set to be destroyed after they tested positive for bovine TB.
Thirty one of the reactors were in-calf heifers, which will have a significant impact on his herd.
Paul said: “It’s not only losing the animals now, it’s losing the unborn calves inside them. Potentially I’m losing fifteen replacements for next year and the year after.”
