Farming Today This Week: Animal health

From Bovine TB to antibiotic resistance, Farming Today This Week explores the impact animal health has on both livestock and the farming industry as a whole. Caz Graham visits the School of Veterinary Science at the University of Liverpool where she watches a post mortem of a badger and speaks to the next generation of large animal vets.

Farming Today This Week also hears from the vet leading a major investigation into how cattle sold from a dairy herd, thought to be TB free, tested positive for the disease. And Sarah Falkingham visits a pig producer in Yorkshire to find out why biosecurity measures are so important on his farm.

Presented by Caz Graham and produced by Lucy Bickerton.
