We have published comprehensive information regarding BVDV, management and tesing options in our BVDV Beef and BVDV Dairy booklets.
For those who want to do their sampling the most cost effective way, there are instuctions and submission forms available below, to enable the quickest sampling-to-results turnaround times for ear notching, Bulk Milk Tank samples and blood samples.
Ear notching is a very simple process, it does not require a qualified veterinarian to be present. Using the instructions below (sample collection and freight) ensures that the biological risk of contamination between animals is minimised and samples can be processed at the laboratory easily and quickly. There is also information on our Zee tag collection devices which take an ear notch without leaving a visible mark.
We sell a device that allows blood samples to be taken by producers, this is called a TEGO and information regarding its use and advantages is available in the TEGO documents below.
For dairy clients, we have Bulk Milk Tank antibody testing information along with details on how to collect and send samples to ensure they arrive in good condition for testing.
