Remove PI's from Scottish Herds

 Nigel Miller, Chairman of Livestock Health Scotland, stresses the importance of removing persistently infected animals from Scotland’s herds to assist in eradicating BVD within his blog. The persistently infected animals are the driving force of the disease, continually shedding high levels of virus, spreading infection within the herd and seeking new infections.

 This comes on the back of the introduction of the ‘positive’ herd status announcement earlier this month which is set to make the current eradication scheme easier to understand for Scotland’s farmers.
