Current BVD eradication options

Ongoing BVD control schemes aim to: (i) prevent the introduction of BVD virus (including live or inactivated vaccines) in free herds; (ii) remove PI animals from infected herds; (iii) monitor BVD status over time. Eradication programmes in the EU have been applied variously at national, regional and herd level.
