Implementing measures to keep badgers and cattle apart
Adam, livestock farmer, Warwickshire
Improved badger-proofing is one of the many tools necessary to tackle bovine TB, alongside stringent movement controls, cattle testing and culling.
The whole purpose of what we’re trying to do on our farm is to try and stop interaction between badgers and cattle, so that if one is diseased it doesn’t give it to the other. Bit by bit we’re improving our biosecurity, but there is no single answer to TB – it’s about an array of answers.
