DAIRY UK RESPONSE TO POSPONEMENT OF BADGER CULL TRIALS

Dairy UK is disappointed at the postponement of the badger cull trials.

A pragmatic, science based approach to tackling Bovine TB remains the correct approach and it is frustrating for all involved that the pilots cannot go ahead effectively at this stage. We support efforts to ensure the pilots proceed at the earliest opportunity.

Healthy dairy cows and a healthy badger population is the objective in seeking to eradicate Bovine TB.
