The list has been fully endorsed by the BCVA, and vet and Junior Vice President of the association, Keith Cutler, has played a key role in the writing of a new section which explains the diseases to ask about and what the potential impact of these on your farm could be.

Information includes details of the various tests that can be done, and explains what the results mean. “The list has been written to explain the sort of biosecurity risks involved when buying stock,” explains Brian Lindsay, head of research and development at DairyCo, “and how you can reduce that risk and manage it better if it is an issue.

“The checklist is designed to support farmers in the purchasing process, helping to make sure that the correct questions are asked. It means that farmers considering purchasing cattle can find out what potential risks there may be, and discuss how these can be managed with their vet.”
