BVD Free

BVDFree England is the national, voluntary, industry-led scheme that was launched on 1 July 2016. The aim is to eliminate BVD from all cattle in England by 2022, by identifying and removing all animals persistently infected (PI) with the BVD virus.

BVDFree is built around a national database,, which recognises individual animals and herds testing under the scheme. By entering a UK tag number, an individual animal’s BVD status can be found or you can search for a herd’s BVD status by entering the CPH number. The database aims to provide farmers with recognition, confidence and traceability when buying and selling BVDFree cattle.
