Q: BIOSECURITY: I don’t currently have double fencing around my farm. Can I still be a PCHS member?


YES: Double fencing or use of an appropriate boundary to provide a gap of 3m between your cattle and neighbouring cattle is a requirement for the BVD and IBR Accredited Free programmes. Where this cannot be achieved herds can opt to vaccinate against these diseases and join the Vaccinated Monitored Free (VMF) programmes. The status of VMF herds is considered lower than accredited free herds.
