ABSTRACT
This article reports on the decision of the National Farmers Union (NFU) to renew its call for the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to initiate a targeted cull of badgers to tackle bovine tuberculosis. According to NFU deputy president Meurig Raymond, although the NFU was prepared to help where possible with a cull, the precise details and operational leadership should be a matter for DEFRA and its agencies, because only they had the necessary information and expertise.
