Defra has funded a full redesign of the TB hub website to make it easier for farmers to find the information they need.
The Welsh government supports the redesign, and will be providing bilingual content for the site in due course. For those that need information in a hurry, there are videos, podcasts, factsheets and FAQs covering a variety of topics, as well as in-depth articles for those that want more detail.
There are two key groups who the redesigned TB hub particularly aims to help:
- Those who are dealing with a TB breakdown
- Those who want to protect their herd from TB
The TB hub is a joint industry-government initiative. Since it was launched in 2015, it has become the ‘go-to’ place for British beef and dairy farmers to find practical advice and information on dealing with bovine TB on their farm. It covers a broad range of subjects, from biosecurity measures and TB testing, to understanding cattle trading rules. Alongside guidance on minimising the impact of TB on farms, there is also information on what farmers can do to reduce the risk of bovine TB getting into their herds, both from cattle movements and wildlife.
