Estimating the savings to farmers from eradicating BVD

Scotland’s BVD eradication scheme was developed with the cattle industry to reduce disease and make Scotland’s national herd more productive. The Scottish Government have looked at the economics of BVD eradication and published the Estimating the Savings to Farmers from Eradicating BVD report in 2019. The report shows that the average-sized cattle herd will save £2,000 to £14,000 (depending on herd type) each year that the herd is BVD Negative.
