BVA joins coalition to eradicate BVD in England

The BVA has joined the 70-strong coalition of organisations that are pushing to eradicate bovine viral diarrhoea (BVD) in England.

The BVDFree campaign launches on 1 July and is England's first national scheme to eradicate the disease from all cattle herds.

Made up of organisations from the veterinary profession, industry, science sector and government, BVDFree offers farmers and vets the chance to work together to improve animal welfare and farm efficiency.

Utilising social media the campaign will make use of easy-to-remember techniques, such as ADAM (Assess the level of biosecurity and disease risk on farm; Define the BVD status of your herd; Action plan for control of BVD put in place; Monitor progress - annual status check).
