- Funded, whole herd sampling to detect any unidentified BVD virus-positive animals must be conducted as part of the investigation.
- The option to retest animals with initial inconclusive or virus positive results is no longer permitted.
- Funded vaccination of female animals over 12 months of age also must be carried out.
- Investigations must be completed as soon as possible. Only when the virus-positive animals are removed and the investigation, blood sampling and vaccination are completed, herd restrictions will be lifted.
