If you took part throughout 2019 you will shortly receive an invite to one of our upcoming meetings. Alternatively, please contact your local surgery to indicate which meeting you can attend. It is a requirement of the BVD Stamp It Out project, that farmers who have received the benefit of the funding, attend a meeting.
When: Tuesday, 4 February, 12:30. Where: The Thatched Inn, Abbotsham EX39 5BA
When: Monday, 10 February, 12:30. Where: The Old Station House Inn, Blackmoor Gate EX31 4NW
When: Thursday, 27 February, 12.30 Where: The Coaching Inn, Queen Street, South Molton EX36 3BJ.
In addition to a hot lunch, meetings will offer an update on the BVD eradication plan. This includes results so far of the Stamp It Out project, case studies and the next steps to take. We will also be giving an overview of the current bTB situation and the role of the TB Farm Advisory Service.
If you are yet to participate:
We have secured additional funding to add a significant number of farms to the BVD Stamp It Out project this year. All cattle farmers (dairy and beef, breeders and rearers) can access substantial funding to start or take their herd’s BVD control to the next level.
Remember, Red Tractor guidelines released in Oct 2019 state that a BVD eradication plan must be in place at the time of inspection.
Funding includes meetings, individual farm visits and initial check testing with the potential for further funding towards
eliminating persistently infected cattle (PI’s) from confirmed ‘infected’ herds. Accessing the funding starts with attending a BVD Stamp It Out meeting in your area. The first date available is:
When: Tuesday 11 February, 12:30 Where: The Thatched Inn, Abbotsham EX39 5BA
Watch this space for more dates soon. Please call 01237 870456 or e: firstname.lastname@example.org to register to attend.
