TB ReactorTB Advisory Service (TBAS)

Our vets are now part of the TB Advisory Service which offers free visits to discuss TB risk on farm, and offers four simple cost effective, practical recommendations based on the risks identified.

  • Free to eligible farmers
  • Includes a follow-up visit 6 months after the first assessment

The TB Advisory Service has been running for 4 years, funded by the rural development program for England (RDPE) 98% of Farmers that had a free farm visit said the recommendations at the end were useful and 90% rated the service as excellent.

Defra is now funding the TB Advisory Service for the whole of England, previously it was only available for farmers in the high risk and edge areas. This new funding also allows those farming other TB susceptible species (camelids, deer, goats, pigs and sheep) to have visits not just cattle keepers.
