ABSTRACT
The article highlights the views of Peter Kendall, president of the National Farmers' Union (NFU), on addressing animal disease across Great Britain. Kendal spoke at a council meeting as bovine tuberculosis (TB) figures showed that cattle cull will break 40,000 by the end of 2008. He said that the plan of Great Britain Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) for animal disease cost and responsibility sharing would be untenable if the department will not implement a substantial badger cull to control bovine TB.
