Farms to operate BSE cull

NORTHERN IRELAND - Almost 700 cattle will be culled from 200 Northern Ireland farms because of BSE. They are the cohorts - born on or after August 1996 of parent cattle found to have had the disease. The operation is part of a managed transition towards lifting the Over Thirty Months Rule which prevents animals of that age entering the food chain.
