Vets can find out more about the first national scheme to eradicate bovine viral diarrhoea (BVD) in England via a BCVA webinar.

BVDFree England, which launches on 1 July, asks vets, farmers and those in the cattle industry to get involved in the scheme to successfully remove BVD from all English cattle herds.

The industry-led scheme will take a coordinated approach to eliminate the disease.

Call for support

To mark the launch of BVDFree England, those within the cattle sector will be asked to show their support in a number of ways: from displaying banners, posters and badges on farms, in offices and on buildings; to sharing information on social media and via word of mouth.

On 28 June, BCVA will host a webinar to share details of the scheme with vets who can spread the word about the scheme and its benefits to their farming clients and colleagues. It is available to BCVA members free of charge, as well as non-members for £40.

  • For more information about the webinar and to register, email office@cattlevet.co.uk or telephone 01452 725735.
