BVD consultation - what are your views?

Scottish Government have just launched the public consultation on the next phase of Scotland’s BVD eradication scheme.  The consultation will be available for response until 6th November, see here:  https://consult.scotland.gov.uk/animal-health-and-welfare/the-bovine-viral-diarrhoea-scotland-order-2018

 

Views from the dairy industry are welcomed and at least one of the proposals could have a significant impact on some dairy herds (proposal 2, question 5).  It’s important that any legislation made to support Phase 5 of the legislation is robust, enforceable and proportionate.  Dairy farmer input and views will help the Scottish Government to achieve that so make your views heard.
