Subsidised Screening

The first stage of the Scottish BVD eradication scheme ran from September 2010 to April 2011, and saw the Scottish Government provide £36 towards testing for BVD for each herd, and a further £72 towards further testing or veterinary advice if the result was positive.  Around 4,000 herds took advantage, at a cost of £180,000.
