Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis (TB), caused by infection with Mycobacterium bovis, is a persistent problem in cattle herds in Ireland and the United Kingdom, resulting in hardship for affected farmers and substantial ongoing national exchequer expenditure. There is irrefutable scientific evidence that badgers ...

Abstract

In Ireland and in the UK, bovine tuberculosis (bTB) infects cattle and wildlife badgers (Meles meles linnaeus) and badgers contribute to the spread of the disease in cattle. Isotropic and anisotropic spatio-temporal models are fitted to cattle herd and badger sett bTB incidence data from the Four...

Abstract

A spatio-temporal analysis of Mycobacterium bovis infection in badgers, an important wildlife-reservoir species, was undertaken in the Republic of Ireland. In total, 4,948 badgers with full capture and testing records were analysed using Generalised Estimating Equations (GEE). The overall badger...

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

Ongoing objective assessment, of national bovine tuberculosis (bTB) policy in Ireland is important to monitor efforts towards improved bTB control. The study objective was to investigate temporal trends in the risk of herd recurrence. The study included all herds derestricted following a bTB...

Abstract

There has been a national bovine tuberculosis eradication programme in Ireland since 1954. Initial progress was rapid, but has subsequently stalled despite the implementation of each of the accepted elements of disease control. Based on results from the east Offaly and four area projects, there is...

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

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is a persistent problem in cattle herds in Great Britain and Ireland. Farm management and cattle husbandry practices can influence the risk of transmission of bTB and hence the likelihood of bTB breakdown (≥1 reactor to the tuberculin skin test). Biological differences are ...

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

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 ...
