      After the decision to delay the badger-cull pilot study it might be that badgers are breathing a sigh of relief. Except they won’t be because we don’t have in place effective measures to limit the spread of bovine TB in badgers and cattle and from one to the other (both ways!). Reducing the density of badgers in those areas of England where there is a significant level of TB in cattle reduces the incidence of TB in cattle in the same area; 2. Removal of badgers should take place alongside the continued application of controls on cattle.

      In response to a question from the shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in September this year, the Government accepted that about 50% of cases of bovine TB in areas where the randomised badger culling trial took place were attributed to badgers. The scientific evidence is clear, Lord Krebs large scale trial of culling concluded that “badger culling cannot meaningfully contribute to the future control of cattle Tb”. His report recognised that the main cause of the spread of bovine Tb is from cattle to cattle transmission, therefore substantial reductions of the disease in cattle.

    3 September A wildlife charity calling on the government to do more to stop Bovine TB spreading further into the North West - but without killing badgers. The disease, which can spread to cattle from badgers, is said to be costing the UK economy up to one hundred million pounds this year. Intensive animal farming or industrial livestock production, also known as factory farming, is a production approach towards farm animals in order to maximize production output, while minimizing production costs. Intensive farming refers to animal husbandry, the keeping of livestock such as cattle, poultry, and fish at higher stocking densities than is usually the case with other forms of.

Badger culling in the United Kingdom is permitted under licence, within a set area and timescale, as a way to reduce badger numbers in the hope of controlling the spread of bovine tuberculosis (bTB). Humans can catch bTB, but public health control measures, including milk pasteurisation and the BCG vaccine, mean it is not a significant risk to human health.

Bovine tuberculosis (bovine TB) is a controversial animal health policy issue in England, which impacts farmers, the public, cattle and badgers. Badgers (Meles meles) act as a wildlife reservoir.

Badgers live a whole world away from people, or would if they could – they have become nocturnal in places with high human populations.

The BCG vaccine has been found to be effective in cattle and badgers as well as humans, so may well work in camelids BUT it's not legal to use it at present. This is partly because it is not known what effect vaccination would have on TB tests and we don't yet have a test which can distinguish between infected and vaccinated animals.

The Krebs Report as long ago as stated “The best prospect for control of TB in the British herd is to develop a cattle vaccine”, and £18 million was spent proving vaccinating young. Badgers: Bovine Tuberculosis Question for Short Debate pm.
