Abstract

Significant improvement in bovine tuberculosis (BTB) levels has been achieved in Ireland over the past 10 years. This is attributed to a coordinated program of control and eradication in both the cattle herd and also in the wildlife reservoir, the badger, underpinned by a comprehensive research and ...

Abstract

A descriptive analysis, to investigate the potential risk factors that might have contributed to the increased incidence of bovine tuberculosis (BTB) herd-breakdowns in the reference area of Co. Donegal during the fifth year of the four-area project (FAP), was performed. Seventy two different herds ...

Abstract

The association between the occurrence of bovine tuberculosis and a number of possible risk factors: herd size, the purchasing of cattle, the herd history, the status of contiguous herds, distance to the nearest badger sett, and animal factors such as age, breed and animal type, was investigated....

Abstract

Using hypothetical values for the cost of putative cattle and possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) tuberculosis (Tb, caused by Mycobacterium bovis) vaccines, the relative efforts required to eradicate Tb in cattle using possum culling, possum vaccination or cattle vaccination were compared. For realistic ...

Abstract

An observational study was carried out, using data collected from four areas in the Irish midlands, between 1989 and 2004, to critically evaluate the long-term effects of proactive badger culling and to provide insights into reactive badger culling tuberculosis (TB) prevalence in cattle. Confirmed...

Abstract

European badgers (Meles meles) are a wildlife reservoir for Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis) in parts of England, Wales and Ireland, constituting a potential source of tuberculosis (TB) infection for cattle. Vaccination of badgers against TB is one of the tools available for helping reduce the...

Abstract

The control of diseases in human and livestock populations can be hampered by the existence of a reservoir of infection in wildlife. However, simplistic approaches of controlling such sources of infection by culling wildlife populations may not adequately address ecological complexities. In the UK...

Abstract

In the UK and the Republic of Ireland, the European badger (Meles meles) is a maintenance host for Mycobacterium bovis, and may transmit the infection to cattle causing bovine tuberculosis (TB). Vaccination of badgers using an injectable Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccine is undertaken in some...
