New plans hope to minimise risk of Bovine TB "spreading through cattle movement"

On the borders of high risk areas, the aim is to prevent the spread of TB.

In each area, different combinations of cattle and badger control measures are being suggested to tackle the disease.

The focus in low risk areas is on minimising the risk of the disease spreading through cattle movements.

The strategy also talks about badger culling, vaccination of cattle and badgers and the promotion of a risk based approach to cattle trading.
