Badger Cattle Contact Project
The Badger Cattle Contact Project was established in 2012 to research contact between badgers and cattle to understand how bovine tuberculosis is transmitted between the species. We are independent scientists with no alliance to either side of the debate on managing TB in cattle and badgers. Our research is funded by DEFRA.
Please explore our webpages, but feel free to contact us if you have any queries with regard to our research.
Badgers are an important source of cattle TB, yet no-one knows how infection is transmitted, nor how best to prevent it. This project aims to determine where, when and how often badgers and cattle come into contact, both directly through touching, and indirectly through a shared environment. Once we understand how badger-cattle contact occurs, we will test out methods to prevent it.
