Researchers from Defra will be attending the BAS AGM to present the results of a national project into the effectiveness of blood tests to detect TB in camelids.

Dr Martin Vordermeier and Shelley Rhodes from the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency will discuss their research findings which were published in August. Their presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.

The AGM is being held at the BAS National Show 2013, Bury Farm Equestrian Centre, Leighton Buzzard on 11/12 May. Click here for further information.
