The Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency provides DEFRA with data on the number of cases of camelids it has examined for TB each quarter and the number positive for M. bovis on culture. Cumulative figures are published in the statistics section of DEFRA's website.
The numbers of cases reported in the last 12 months have been:
|October-December 2010||January-March 2011||April-June 2011||July-September 2011|
|Numbers positive for M. bovis|
All data provided for 2011 are provisional and subject to change as more becomes available.
The figures represent submissions of individual animals rather than premises (i.e. several submissions may be from the same premises) and are made up of a combination of voluntary submissions from a range of farms and also multiple submissions from a small number of TB-restricted herds undergoing repeat TB testing and compulsory slaughter of TB test reactor animals (i.e. which have given a test result consistent with being infected with bovine TB) and non-reactor (“direct contact”) animals.
