Welcome to the website of the Cornwall TB eradication group.

We a group of people from a variety of backgrounds including farmers, vets and members of a range of organisations, all with a shared passion for eradicating bovine tuberculosis from the Cornish landscape. The group was initiated by DEFRA in 2016 with the following objectives:

  • Collaborative working towards eradication; producing practical solutions and guidance towards implementing policy.
  • Education and information: training events and guidance for best practice and the science and epidemiology behind the eradication programme.
  • Consultation, challenge and escalation: local challenge feeding into APHA and policy making and consideration of initiatives and factors which may enhance the move towards eradication
