Detail

The annual bovine TB surveillance reports, commissioned by Defra and the devolved administrations, provide a comprehensive account of the current descriptive epidemiology of bovine TB in Great Britain.

In the GB report, the figures for the most recent year are analysed by country (England, Scotland and Wales) and put in the context of the more historical trends of the disease.

From 2012, the Animal and Plant Health Agency (formerly AHVLA) has produced separate annual surveillance reports for England and Wales which include more in-depth analyses by risk area and by county.

The report of bovine TB slaughterhouse surveillance (2009-2013) has been produced to analyse the key trends in the detection of the disease by post-mortem meat inspection carried out during commercial slaughter of cattle and the contribution that this makes to the overall bovine TB surveillance effort in GB. This report will be updated by APHA every 3 or 4 years.

The GB and England TB surveillance reports are based on the same data source as the national statistics on TB in cattle in GB (Sam). However because of differences in the way that the data are treated for each publication, there are small discrepancies between some of the analysis in the publications. These are explained in the England TB surveillance report.

For reports published before 2013, see the archived AHVLA web pages.
