While management strategies alone are not likely enough to eradicate bTB, cattle management practices can be used to greatly reduce the probability of badger-to-cattle transmission.
Possible Management Practices:
- Prevent badgers from accessing cattle housing
- Keep buildings and gates closed, secured
- Raising cattle feed off the ground to exclude badger access
- Rotational grazing system
- To reduce exposure of cattle to potentially badger-contaminated pasture
- Fencing off badger setts
