Targeting Profitable Beef Production

The Tidkin herd are members of the Hi Health Scheme
All young stock enjoyed a clear screen for BVD and were tested negative for IBR in October 2010.
All adult stock were found to be clear of Johne’s disease at the same time.
The herd is now registered as accredited free of BVD and has achieved risk level 1 Johne’s disease status (since 9/11/11)
The herd is in a 4 year TB testing area.
All young stock are vaccinated against BVD for their future protection.
We tested clear for IBR for 3 years incorporating a vaccination policy. On veterinary advice we now do not vaccinate against IBR as it is unnecessary, but still screen for it annually.
