Movement of Animals born after 1st March 2016

Herd owners are reminded to check the BVD status of animals before they move. BVD statuses can be found on APHIS online or on your APHIS herd list. All animals should have the status of BVDN or INDNEG.

All animals entering Northern Ireland are required to be BVD tested. 

If an animal is BVDU they can be tested using BVD supplementary tags (available from your tag supplier) or a blood sample taken by your PVP. 

Agricultural shows:

You can access BVD test results from the AHWNI database and can print a certificate of BVD negative test results prior to any future sales/shows.  BVD statuses are also available on APHIS online and on your APHIS herd list.

ROI Animals:

Herd owners who have imported cattle from the RoI can send an e-mail to info@animalhealthni.com, listing the individual numbers of the imported cattle, for consideration of the BVD status that these cattle will have obtained in the RoI.  Where a laboratory designated under the NI programme has been used in the RoI, AHWNI may be able to obtain BVD Negative statuses.  Adequate notice must be given before animals are intended to be moved or exported if BVD statuses are to be requested from the RoI.  Herd owners must allow at least three full working days for delivery of statuses on to APHIS by AHWNI.  


 

Animal Health and Welfare NI

Animal Health and Welfare NI (AHWNI) was formally launched in 2012. It is an industry-led, not-for-profit partnership between livestock producers, processors, animal health advisers and government. It is overseen by a board of directors. Its remit covers diseases and conditions of cattle which are endemic in Northern Ireland, but which are not currently subject to regulation or coordinated programmes of control. AHWNI seeks to benefit livestock producers and processors by providing the knowledge, education and coordination required to establish effective control programmes for non-notifiable diseases of livestock. The first of these programmes will address bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV). A programme on Johne’s disease is also under development.
