ABSTRACT
The article reports that National Farmers Union president Peter Kendall has branded the claims of Hillary Benn, the secretary of Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) that badger culling was not a practical solution to controlling bovine TB in Great Britain, as an insult to the industry. Kendall said that farmers in the West Country, working under the VLA9 group, showed exactly how an effective cull could be co-ordinated. He referred to the group as a perfect example of how the industry could work together against bovine TB.
