Aim of the group
To reduce bovine TB and ultimately aim to make Cornwall free of the disease.
The Group will seek to influence how the England TB Eradication strategy is implemented in Cornwall. We will seek to innovate by trialling approaches best-suited to the Cornish situation. The Group will link both strategically with Defra nationally and on a more practical level through local networks. The group will develop a collective understanding of new and existing research and use this together with the members’ first-hand experience of farming, veterinary practice, academic research and wildlife conservation in Cornwall.
