Bovine TB

Bovine TB is a chronic, infectious and primarily respiratory disease caused by the slow-growing bacterium Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis). It is mainly a disease of cattle and other bovines, but can affect a wide range of mammal species including goats, sheep and pigs.

Guidance and forms are at GOV.UK – Bovine TB and more information can be found on the TB hub website. Advice is also available from the TB Advisory Service.
