TB In Goats Breakthrough Finally!

As many of you will be aware, as its stands today, there is no compulsory compensation payable for goats taken with TB. I am very pleased to confirm that the new statutory TB compensation arrangements for non-bovines will come into force on 2nd January 2018.


The values payable will be as follows:


1 year old or younger £80

Non-breeding, over 1 year old £160

Breeding female, over 1 year old £250

Stud male, over 1 year old £350

This is fantastic news for the industry and will save a lot of worry for many of our dairy goat clients.
