Funding for Bovine TB test evaluation study welcomed

The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) is pleased to receive Government of Canada funding of up to $318,930 for a research project aimed at identifying bovine tuberculosis (TB) tests that are more reliable and cost-effective than those presently in use.

The funding from the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program will assist the Beef Cattle Research Council-led project to evaluate commercial tests for bovine TB developed by diagnostic companies, and identify those tests that provide a rapid, reliable and accurate diagnosis.
