BVDFree is a voluntary industry-led scheme driving the elimination of BVD in England. The scheme is based on helping farmers to identify if their herd may be infected with BVD. Farms can eliminate BVD virus infection by identifying and removing animals persistently infected (PIs) with BVD virus. All herds should take action to minimise the risk of breaking down with BVD.
The BVDFree database is a searchable database which holds details of the BVD status of individual animals and of the herds signed up to BVDFree.
