Now the decision has been taken to attempt to eliminate Mbovis from the national herd it defies logic that privacy concerns over ride the need for useful information to contain spread of the disease.

The "Cheviot farmer"  caught up in the infected herds has outed himself so now everyone knows where it is and are enabled to take sensible precautions.
Bloody basic I would have thought.
Quarantine would have been at the top of any management agenda might have been a sensible first step or am I being too practicable.

Privacy be damned, seeing the trucks roll in to a farm as a first hint of trouble seems stupid and afaik there is no vaccine for that either!
