The TB Advisory Service is delighted to introduce its first ever TBAS Awards for 2021!
TBAS is championing 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.
By: TB Advisory Service
If you are a farmer or know a colleague who has invented a badger proof trough, re thought breeding plans to reduce the impact TB would have on the business, or has changed buying practices to reduce the chances of bringing TB onto the farm please nominate or enter. We want the simple stuff and the more elaborate – to show just how resourceful and innovative farmers and advisors can be.
We have some big sponsors Arla, NFU, Sell My livestock, Suckled Beef Producers Association and VetPartners. We also have some great judges with vast TB knowledge, Stuart Roberts Deputy President of the NFU, James Wood leading TB epidemiologist and co-contributor to the Godfray review, Nikki Hopkins farm vet and BCVA President and Andy Robertson badger ecologist and member of the TBAS technical board.
To nominate please visit our website www.tbas.org.uk/
Entries close on 31st December.
