Great Britain: field test done against bovine tuberculosis

In England and Wales currently a field test is done with a vaccine against bovine tuberculosis. The disease is wide spread in this regions, mainly by badgers. The Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccine is already since 1921 used for children but is not used for cattle because it interferes with the test that is used to detect infected animals.
