Bovine Turberculosis (bTB) is a Notifiable Disease that has a serious impact on cattle farming in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The Quantock Hills AONB is not a land-owning body, so we haven't been contacted with regards to the cull. Currently there are no definitive maps available showing the location of the West Somerset pilot cull area, however we have received strong indication that it does not include land within the AONB.
