The vice president of the National Farmers' Union, Adam Quinney, said the badger cull is not about "wiping out badgers" but reducing TB in "areas where it is endemic".
A new poll has revealed the public opinion is divided on whether the badger cull should go ahead.
This will ensure this terrible disease doesn't spread to areas of the country that are currently clear of it.
Farmers are already playing their part in tackling TB.
Robust new on-farm rules were introduced in January 2013 as part of the Government's TB eradication plan, which aims to tackle all aspects of TB infection in the countryside.
These rules followed the introduction of additional cattle controls, more pre-movement testing and increased on-farm biosecurity measures last July.But if we are to successfully tackle TB, action has to be taken to deal with the reservoir of disease in our wildlife.
