BVD Herd Investigations in 2020
All herds that have one or more positive or inconclusive results for BVD virus are required to undergo a BVD herd investigation, funded under the Rural Development Plan 2014-2020.
Herd owners will be contacted by the BVD Helpdesk to nominate the trained veterinary practitioner they wish to conduct their investigation.
Funded, targeted sampling to detect any unidentified PI animals must be conducted as part of the investigation within 2 months of the positive result.
Investigations must be completed within 3 months of the date of the initial positive result.
