In England, the Government is committed to implementing a 25-year strategy to eradicate bovine TB in England. The strategy was published in 2014 and includes tighter cattle measures, vaccination and badger culling.
The Welsh Government established its TB eradication programme, aimed at tackling all sources of infection, to carry out its long-term goal of eradicating bovine TB.
Scotland has been Officially Tuberculosis Free (OTF) since September 2009. This unique position within the UK is recognition of the relatively low and stable incidence of TB found in Scottish herds.
