TB Advisory Service Awards 2021

The aim of the TBAS Awards was to champion the hard work and effort many farmers are doing to reduce the risk of a TB breakdown and the impact TB can have on farm businesses.

Over the last 3 years we have held meetings, attended shows, spoken at farming events for us to engage with farmers and vets in the concept of #ControlTheControllable.

TB is all too often seen as a Government issue, a disease which farmers and vets can have little influence over, here at TBAS our aim has been to change that mind set, to share the science and evidence around TB in order to encourage farmers to take some ownership and control back.

We are delighted to share with you our TBAS Award Winners and what they have done on farm to #ControlTheControllable.
