ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Goat Veterinary Society (GVS) has encouraged goat farmers to cooperate in tuberculosis (TB) testing after the disease was found in 10 herds in England and Wales. About 50 animals are understood to have tested positive for the disease after it was first detected on a Welsh goat farm in July 2008. Nick Clayton, GVS secretary, said the fact the disease had been found in about 50 animals underlined the need for co-operation in testing and slaughter.
