This report assesses the incidence of TB in cattle over 3 years of licensed badger control in Somerset and Gloucestershire, and 1 year for Dorset, since culling started.
Industry-led licensed badger control began in areas of Somerset and Gloucestershire in 2013, and in Dorset in 2015, with the aim of reducing the population of badgers and reducing the potential spread of TB between badgers and cattle.
