Suspend BVD testing for herds with negative status – Beef Plan

The Beef Plan Movement (BPM) has called on the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) and Animal Health Ireland (AHI) to suspend BVD testing for all herds with a BVD negative herd status.

Michael Rafferty, BPM animal health committee, has said that laboratories, used to analyse BVD samples, could be put to better use during the current Covid-19 pandemic.

The farm organisation believe that this is an innovative response to the urgent need for additional laboratory facilities, in order to fast-track test results for the coronavirus.
