Transmission of tuberculosis between fauna

About the activity

The aim of this day is to transfer and share knowledge with the livestock and hunting sector, as well as with society in general, on the situation of animal tuberculosis in Catalonia and in the trans-Pyrenees environment. In particular, the role of the interaction between wildlife and livestock farms in maintaining the disease will be addressed. What are the implications of this interaction for tuberculosis control and eradication programs in cattle or goats? What prevention tools can be applied to mitigate its effect? The day is aimed at cattle ranchers and small ruminants, veterinarians and sanitation officers, staff of hunting handling establishments, groups of hunters, members of the Corps of Rural Agents, and all people interested in the situation and control of this disease in general.
