The report marks the conclusion of the Group’s work, which has provided advice to Ministers and the Chief Veterinary Officer on developing TB control policies, as well as playing an important role in communicating with farmers, vets and other stakeholders.

The report will be considered by the TB Eradication Group, which makes recommendations to the Government on eradicating bovine TB in England.
