We had an eradication program beginning in 1917, largely successful. We don't have a large reservoir in the wild.

We no longer test. i cant imagine the anguish your cattlemen experience. There is sporadic testing at slaughter plants, just to make sure nothing sneaks up on us I suppose.

To add to what Roger said about testing, what he has to do is run all of his animals through a crush http://www.lmbateman.co.uk/products/cat ... le-crushes inject them, poke them and prod them. This is not a cows idea of a fun day out, she likes eating, cudding, lying down and farting, so it disturbs the whole herd and annoys the animals and people in equal measure.

Now the serious wedding bit is done its much easier, there is just the winding down as the brides family members from uk & us depart. Once they have gone we'll have a bit of time catching up over the next 3 weeks as well as wandering off on our own somewhere.

Today after Art on Cottisloe beach, lunch & beers, then back to base for a swim and kip raggy style- so yes is the answer

How far do you plan to wander? Up the centre? Far north? East coast?

Yeah I've watched that a few times, lots of mooing and banging around going on.


Can anyone tell me about other countries (Europe) and eating and drinking from these animals?

Pasteurising milk makes it safe, most dairy farmers (including me) drink it raw
Most TB reactor cattle will enter the food chain as beef, cooking the beef kills the bacteria just like pasteurising does.
France and Germany kill badgers & I would think so do the other countries. Imagine if it was rats that spread TB not badgers, no-one would think twice about culling.
TB is a respiratory disease, where better to multiply / spread than down a damp poorly vented badger hole (sett)

Sticking this side. No further up than Geraldton, but several things in Perth to do, + rockingham, mandurah missed last time plus would like to stay down in freo a few days- lots down there and would have to be mid-week. Did a bit of Margret river last time but could go back there again too.

Trying to fit in rotto too!
