ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses role played by the Bovine TB Advisory Group which governs bovine tuberculosis (TB) and cattle in control policies in England. He cites the statement of Hilary Benn, Secretary of State at Great Britain's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), that badgers are not allowed to control TB. He suggests that Animal Health offices should involve private veterinarians in developing disease reduction plans appropriate to individual farms.
