Cumbrian farmers are being invited to attend a meeting in Penrith to learn of new Bovine TB testing rules.
From January 1st a number of new rules come into force which will have a direct impact on farmers in the County.
The meeting, aimed at both farmers and vets will outline measures to try to remain TB free.
"There is concern that some farmers in Cumbria and Lancashire are not fully aware of what is coming in or the implications for them and their neighbours if TB is confirmed on their farm."
