TB restrictions - BRP manual

All cattle keepers are required by law to have their animals tested regularly. The time period between tests differs across the country – depending on the incidence of the disease.

If a farm fails these tests, movement restrictions are imposed and further testing is required. This causes problems for farmers with limited facilities to rear and finish cattle.

Approved TB routes to trade

There are three main types of approved routes to sell cattle on holdings with movement restrictions due to TB.

Alongside these, farms are able to sell cattle to other farms under the same or higher level of restriction, under licence from AHVLA and following a satisfactory risk assessment.

This factsheet details the options available to producers under restrictions.
