"You've killed a third of my herd unnecessarily"

Having lost over 60 cattle in the last couple of years, a SW pedigree beef breeder told a top Defra civil servant yesterday that the non-policy which she was following on badgerTB, was responsible for killing a third of his prize winning herd, unnecessarily.

Gordon Tully's herd of South Devon cattle had a severe TB breakdown in 2007 / 2008, which culminated in the loss of over 60 cattle. Yesterday at the Royal Show, Mr. Tully was able to give Katrina Williams, director of animal diseases at Defra, the benefit of his experience. Western Morning News
has the story.
