This TB Information note provides advance information about changes which will come into effect shortly. From 6 April 2016, farmers in the Low Risk Area of England will need to arrange post-movement tests for cattle bought from herds in annual (or more frequent) surveillance testing areas of England and Wales. This enhanced control supports the important objective of achieving Officially TB free status for the Low Risk Area.
