TB movement control areas

TB movement control areas

An important way to help prevent the spread of tuberculosis (TB) is the use of movement control areas. No cattle or deer can be moved out of these designated areas without a permit from the Animal Health Board. Approval will be given only if the herd has had a negative test within 60 days of the planned movement date. The red areas of the map are the TB control areas as at March 2007.
