Introduction of Bovine TB post-movement testing in Low Risk Areas

Post-movement testing is being introduced into the Low Risk Area (LRA) of England for cattle moved from other areas of England and Wales.

The current plan is for new legislation to come into effect on 6 April 2016.  It is intended to further reduce the risk that TB-infected cattle moved from higher TB incidence areas of GB could transmit the disease to herds in the Low Risk Area (LRA) of England.   This measure was strongly supported by stakeholders, including cattle keepers in the LRA, in the TB cattle measures consultation carried out in 2015.
