The British Cattle Veterinary Association (BCVA) is co-hosting a sixth conference in the global fight against bovine TB.

International delegates from Ethiopia to New Zealand will gather next month at the International Mycobacterium bovis Conference in Cardiff to discuss the disease.

The three-day programme will include keynote speakers who will present on a range of topics surrounding bovine TB, including vaccination, innovations and wildlife policy options.

Wales’ chief veterinary officer, Christianne Glossop said: “TB is one of the most serious animal health issues faced in Wales, and we have a commitment to eradicate it.

“As well as learning from others from across the world, we are looking forwards to sharing our eradication programme based on an annual testing regime and improved standards of biosecurity.

“Production systems and farming conditions may vary but the basic principles of infectious disease control are the same the world over and this is a fantastic opportunity for Wales and the UK.”  

The conference runs every four years and will take place between June 16 and 19 at the City Hall in Cardiff.
