BVD

BVD suppresses the immune system of infected animals, and as a result a whole host of diseases may be more prevalent on your farm. Symptoms may include

  • unexplained ill thrift
  • reduced fertility and abortions
  • subfertility in bulls
  • pneumonia and scour in calves

As a practice we have been heavily involved in the XLVets BVD Free campaign and look forwards to working on BVDFree England, which was launched on 1st July 2016.  This industry-led ​ scheme is designed to eliminate BVD virus from all cattle herds in the country by 2022.  It will develop a national database, storing individual and herd test results for scheme members.
