New funding from the EU has become available to help with eradicating BVD on farm. There is £6.3 million allocated to this project – this will be the last health initiative of this kind before Brexit! This funding is available to all cattle keepers and we strongly encourage you to make the most of this opportunity – public funds for cattle disease investigation are likely to be very scarce in the post Brexit era.
So what do you have to do to access the funding for free farm visits and testing ?
Please come along to one of our initial BVD ‘Stamp It Out’ meetings. These will be informative but light hearted meetings which will discuss some of our experiences of BVD. We will discuss the funding available and required process – there will be the expected food and drink too! The initiative is open to all – dairy or beef farms – and regardless of whether you have vaccinated your stock or not. All farms will benefit from the free testing and advice available – overall there is £1200 of input available per farm and all that is required to access the funds is attendance at this introductory meeting and a desire to control this common disease.
