Routine TB tests in Hampshire and Dorset are performed annually, however there are some additional regulations that relate to animals on the New Forest.
Our vets are APHA-approved to perform TB testing on cattle.
Unfortunately with the recent changes to the way government-funded TB tests (whole herd-tests, tracer tests, new herd tests etc) are paid, we have elected to discontinue our contract with XL Farmcare to perform these tests. This means that we are not able to perform Government-funded TB testing through XL Farmcare, however we understand the importance of having a familiar face performing your test, so we are still able to perform these tests privately. Unfortunately this would be at your own expense.
We can also combine TB testing with blood testing for disease screening, pregnancy diagnosis, and various other basic procedures (such as castrations and disbudding) as we understand in many cases this is the easiest or only opportunity to have this done.
We still offer routine pre-movement testing as always.
Please get in contact with us to discuss any TB testing enquiries you may have.
