A declaration by Bryan May and Dick Sibly, that they had found the answer to bovine TB and declared they could clear any farm of bovine TB has now ended abruptly, surprise, surprise. They stated that it was spread through cow muck, from cow to cow, nothing to do with wildlife.
Their message has been passed on to vets who are advising herds with TB breakdowns, that it is all about bio security and TB passed on through cow muck. After tens of thousands of pounds in funding, Mr Reeds herd has now gone down with TB again. instead of admitting that they haven’t got a clue they have come up with the conclusion that it’s in the milk or in the womb, now they are going to do an investigation as to where it has come from. perhaps it could have been a flying pig.
I would advise Mr Reed that the badgers have worked out his bio security defences, if he had listened to my advice five years ago when I visited his farm & found some highly infectious badgers, I guarantee he’d be in a much better position than he is now. The answer to TB has been right in front of them but they haven’t wanted to see it.
