ABSTRACT
The article reports on the restrictions imposed on the calf export industry in Great Britain after it was discovered that calves exported to Holland are infected with bovine tuberculosis (TB). Dutch importers are boycotting cattle from the country after 12 animals exported to six farms tested positive for the disease. The calves were traced after reactors were found on a British farm which exported the animals in May 2008. The farm involved contacted the British Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) immediately.
