Help us assess the buying habits and available capacity of AFU (Approved Finishing Unit) in England and Wales.

Bovine TB (bTB) breakdowns continue to have an unprecedented impact on industry, we are asking for all AFU operators to complete the survey to gain a deeper insight into TB licensed units.

Complete our online AFU survey

The survey should only take you 10 minutes to complete, all data will be anonymised.

The survey will be available until Friday 13 October.

Why should I take part?

By taking part in this survey, you will help us identify future policy interventions to support your business.

From the information gathered we will be able to analyse factors such as the current stocking density of AFUs, factors currently limiting operating at full capacity and annual purchasing habits.

You will have the opportunity to comment on one of the GB Calf Strategy’s key asks on bTB which will help strengthen industry’s request to government to extend the pre-movement testing calf exemption from 42 to 90 days for animals moving into AFU supply chains.
