The annual BVD Survey gathers information from all parts of the UK and all types of farming system to gain a snapshot of what producers are doing on their farm to control and eradicate this costly disease.

This information is then analysed and can be important when it comes to future policy.

The fifth National survey is now live, and those that complete it have a chance of winning one of ten portable and waterproof speakers.

Since the survey first began five years ago, a lot has changed when it comes to BVD control:

• BVD eradication schemes exist in all parts of the UK

• Testing and surveillance options have improved

• Data showing herd BVD status is widely available

• Marts and auction houses support clear identification of stock

• Clear price bonuses exist for stock of known BVD virus status
