Global animal experts join welsh TB debate
ANIMAL experts from as far afield as New Zealand are in Wales to consider how cattle vaccination could contribute to TB eradication.
The Welsh Government is hosting the two-day workshop in Cardiff starting today.
The event will be opened by Minister for Environment John Griffiths, and chaired by Wales's chief vet, Christianne Glossop.
Mr Griffiths said: "I am very pleased to welcome some of the world's leading experts in cattle vaccination to Wales for what I am confident will be a valuable event, and one that will move us closer to our goal of a cattle vaccination strategy for Wales."

The pervious Labour-Plaid coalition had planned to cull badgers as part of an attempt to eradicate the disease, but the new Labour administration dropped the controversial policy.
Last month the Welsh Government complained about a badger cull storyline in popular S4C soap Pobol-y-Cwm — a complaint which was rejected by the broadcaster.
