1. The testing requirements
laid down for Shows and Sales are intended to protect the health of
your animals at the Show.
You can take further steps
to ensure that your animals are not exposed to any disease risk by:
-moving animals direct
from farm to show site;
-disinfecting the vehicle
used to transport your animals before loading;
-insisting that all
steps necessary to protect your animals are taken by the show committee.
You should contact your
local D.V.O. as soon as you decide to exhibit at any show; this will
ensure that all required documentation is in order before the date
of the show.
2. T .B. and Brucellosis
All animals must come
from herds which are not restricted and have had a clear herd test
in the previous 12 months. All eligible animals (ie. females and bulls
over 12 months of age) must be pre-movement tested for Brucellosis
in the previous 30 days.
Calves must bear double
plastic tags and be accompanied with identity card.
