Meetings & Events

Free meeting :Tuesday 12th of February at Bodmin rugby club at 7pm

The Cornwall TB Eradication group (TBEG) is organising free meetings open to farmers or anyone with an interest in bovine TB in the county. Come along to hear some of the latest information on bovine TB.

There will be talks on current TB trends in the county, Gamma interferon or blood testing (what is it and why is it being used more in Cornwall?) and TB in wildlife and the farm environment (what risks are there from badgers and other wildlife such as deer? what about slurry or other contamination?). The meeting will also be an opportunity to have your questions answered by our panel of experts and also voice your concerns or ideas.
