The tuberculosis collapse causes a lot of stress and anxiety for those dealing with the effects on their herd, but also for other ranchers who remind them that it could happen to them.

With this in mind, NFU Scotland invites members, vets and other professionals to join together for a webinar on Thursday 23rd March at 7pm to hear details of the current veterinary tuberculosis situation in Scotland and what the test and surveillance results mean for Scotland.

The webinar will put the science in context, explaining what it means for farmers and how we are moving forward to ensure that Scotland’s official TB-free status is maintained.
