UK TB Calf Cull
Thousands of UK born calves are being put down due to a number of animals, exported to Holland testing positive for Bovine TB. They were destined for veal farms so perhaps it is a mercy upon them. This is the latest in a series of economic setbacks for British farmers in racen years. BSE, Foot and Mouth and the interestingly named Bluetounge disease have all struck Uk plc. Bluetounge disease is usually found in the eastern mediterranean but has, in the last two years spread to northern europe due to global warming.
