Welcome to Phase 5 of Scotland's BVD Eradication Scheme
Scotland's cattle keepers have made tremendous progress since the BVD eradication scheme started as a voluntary programme in 2010. The majority of breeding herds are now BVD Negative. We need to protect the Negative herds by finding every PI (Persistently Infected) animal in Scotland and prevent them from infecting other cattle.
From the 1st December 2019, additional measures apply to BVD Positive herds (those with PIs) and BVD Not Negative breeding herds, in order to protect the BVD Negative herds.
