Abstract

In Ireland, the badger Meles meles L is a reservoir species for Mycobacterium bovis and, as such, contributes to the maintenance of bovine tuberculosis in cattle. A previous estimate of the badger population in the Republic was 200,000 badgers. In the current study, we obtained data on badger...

Abstract

Tuberculosis in cattle continues to be prevalent in Ireland. In Ireland and Britain, there has been evidence of a potential link between tuberculous badgers and bovine tuberculosis. This study's objectives were to assess the impact of badger removal on the control of tuberculosis in cattle herds....

Abstract

We examined the effect of varying levels of badger population control on the prevalence of Mycobacterium bovis infection in badgers in four counties of Ireland. In the 'Removal' and 'Buffer' areas, proactive culling was conducted to substantially reduce and subsequently maintain badger populations...

Abstract

We described the distribution of badger populations in four different areas in the Republic of Ireland. The data came from periodic targeted badger-removal and subsequent post-mortem examinations conducted between 1989 and September 1997, and from a formal badger-removal project in the same areas...

Abstract

The four-area project was undertaken to further assess the impact of badger removal on the control of tuberculosis in cattle herds in Ireland. It was conducted between 1997 and 2002 in matched removal and reference areas in four counties, namely Cork, Donegal, Kilkenny and Monaghan, representing a...

Abstract

In Ireland, the herd prevalence of bovine tuberculosis has remained stable for several decades, and in common with several other countries, progress towards eradication has stalled. There is evidence in support of the potential role of infected badgers (Meles meles, a protected species) in bovine...

Abstract

The risk of a confirmed tuberculous herd restriction was examined using a logistic model for herds involved in the East Offaly Badger Research Project, Ireland, from 1988 to 1995. Cattle herds present in the badger-removal area had a significantly lower proportion of new confirmed tuberculous herd...

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....
