       DO THE ENGLISH PHEASANTS HAVE bTB that almost 10 million pounds were spent to kill the HEALTHY BADGERS on the PHEASANT REARING and SHOOTING estates!!!PLEASE ,take a minute and read about the THREE REASONS why THE SLAUGHTER (sorry ,but it was not the CULL )of the BADGERS happened last year and why the ‚‘ BOSS‘‘ - the NFU of the ‘‘CULL‘‘ wants to do that again!!!It was NOTHING to do with bTB!!! I do not, and indeed could not, argue that TB is not a serious problem but, without interference with badgers, the situation is improving steadily. DEFRA ARE ARE VERY QUIET ABOUT THE FACT THAT THERE WAS A 13.4% DROP IN THE AMOUNT OF CATTLE COMPULSORY SLAUGHTERED DUE TO BOVINE TB IN THE LAST YEAR!!! Latest DEFRA TB Stats: Jan-Nov 2012/13 Incidence DOWN 0.3% Incidents DOWN 6.3% | Slaughter DOWN 13.4% Who knew! tighter controls work without culling .Now, if the database is ever fixed that WILL REDUCE THE INCIDENT DOWN BY A FURTHER 11% (or more) WHICH WILL DROP THE OVERALL RATE OF INFECTION LOWER THAN IRELAND!!!... So, anyone still believe Ireland achieved their disease reduction by killing badgers?DEFRA DOCUMENT !!!https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/278967/bovinetb-statsnotice-12feb14.pdf More and more people and even some INTERNATIONAL sites agree that the CULL of the BADGERS had THREE MAIN REASONS which I will prove using the documents and the articles!!!It was done last year and the GOVERNMENT eager to do that again because of a BILLION-POUND BUSINESS,sacrifising the WILDLIFE ANIMALS for MONEY!!!It was nothing to do with Btb !!! I.The PHEASANT REARING and SHOOTING ESTATES. TB Free England confirms that saying the BADGERS are being shot because certain farmers think they are pests and they cannot make money out of them,shot because all estates with pheasant shooting or farms with pheasants do not want them on their land because they feel they are pests that eat the pheasants grain, shot because there are a no of areas which will have free reign to develop if badgers no longer exist! 2.NEW HOME DEVELOPING PLANS . The SETTS of the BADGERS are LAW-PROTECTED!!!The UK‘s GOVERNMENT want to see all of these SETTS DEAD!!!No SETTS no PROBLEM for building thousands and thousands of HOUSES!!! 3.The GLOBAL DAIRY MARKET!!! PHEASANT SHOOTING IN BRITAIN. LAST YEAR‘S ‘‘CULL‘‘ZONE WAS EXMOOR!!!AGAIN PHEASANT ESTATES!!!The study shows that GAME SHOOTING on EXMOOR CONTRIBUTES £18 MILLION to the UK ECONOMY . This is a remarkable figure given that SHOOTING is NOT GENERALLY INTENDED FOR PROFIT but IS STRUCTURED so that the PROVISION OF SHOOTING – an UNUSUAL ECONOMIC ACTIVITY – IS PAID FOR BY ITS PARTICIPANTS!!! http://www.exmoor-nationalpark.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0006/271653/GESAPACECreport231006-3.pdf A Freedom of Information request (FoI) to the organisation showed that only 43 per cent of farms in West Gloucestershire taking part in the cull actually contained ANY COWS...KNOWING THAT THE MASSACRE WAS EVEN EXTENDED!!!THE GOVERNMENT COMMITTED THE WILDLIFE CRIME AGAINST THE LAW-PROTECTED BADGERS!!!THE REPORTS SHOWS HORRIFIC ABUSE AND CRUETY TO THEM!!!IT WAS KILLING FOR KILLING TO EXTERMINATE THEM ON PHEASANT ESTATES!!! PHEASANTS DON‘T HAVE bTB.....!!! http://www.gloucestershireecho.co.uk/half-cull-zone-farms-cows/story-20097856-detail/story.html Fewer than half cull-zone farms had cows http://www.duchygame.com/about.html Badgers being culled in cattle free farms http://www.westerndailypress.co.uk/Badgers-culled-cattle-free-farms/story-20097816-detail/story.html About us – BASC South West The South West is a very varied region ranging from island groups, to the wild moors, to the coasts of Devon & Cornwall, and on to the rich farmland and countryside of Wiltshire & Gloucestershire. The region offers a remarkably wide variety of shooting that reflects this diversity, and which makes a substantial contribution to the local economy and to the wellbeing of the countryside. http://basc.org.uk/basc-south-west/about-us/ PHEASANT SHOOTING IN BRITAIN .The SPORT and the INDUSTRY in the 21st CENTURY About 55,000 landowners control between 60 and 80 per cent of the Britishcountryside, much of it used for game management. The public is denied access tomost of their own countryside as a consequence.A day's pheasant shooting costs around £1,000 per person, and the cost of purchasing a shotgun may be £2-3,000. Pheasant shooting remains largely dominated by class and social distinctions. http://www.animalaid.org.uk/images/pdf/kfps.pdf The badger cull has drawn some undesirable people down to Somerset and when they can't find the marksmen lawfully culling badgers some of them are deciding to make a nuisance of themselves on shooting estates." Exmoor is one of England's most important areas for shooting sports, specialising in high bird pheasant shoots – seen as the most challenging and most desirable by guns, who pay significant sums for a day's shooting. With the pheasant season, from October 1, now in full swing any disruption of commercial shoots could be damaging. The most recent figures available show that game shooting on Exmmor was worth £22 million a year to the local economy in 2006. Updated figures are expected to show those earnings have grown significantly. http://www.northdevonjournal.co.uk/Badger-cull-sabs-turn-attention-pheasant-shoots/story-19958091-detail/story.html SURPRISE!!!SURPRISE!!!

China - Peoples Republic of Post: These Measures establish the requirements of inspection, quarantine and supervision for imported and exported dairy products. Article 8 Dairy products exported to China shall have a HEALTH CERTIFICATE (s) issued by the competent authority of the exporting country (region). The CERTIFICATE SHALL INCLUDE INFORMATION THAT: 1. the raw materials of the DAIRY PRODUCTS COMES FROM HEALTHY ANIMALS; 2. the dairy products do NOT HAVE AND WILL NOT TRANSFER ANIMAL EPIDEMIC THROUGH PROCESSING; 3. the dairy producer is under supervision of the competent authority in the region where it operates; 4. the dairy products are proved as fit for human consumption through inspection; and 5. the dairy products comply with China’s national food safety standards. http://gain.fas.usda.gov/Recent%20GAIN%20Publications/Regulation%20on%20Inspection%20of%20Exit-Entry%20Dairy%20Products%20(Draft)_Beijing_China%20-%20Peoples%20Republic%20of_3-24-2011.pdf The global dairy market towards 2020 - Implications for the UK value chain http://www.dairyco.org.uk/media/717382/nc_gb_and_global_dairy_market_outlook_mark_voorbergen120213.pdf Owen Paterson wants the world to put its money where its mouth is and tuck into British food produce “We dropped in cold, unannounced, on a number of supermarkets in Shanghai and we found dairy products from Australia, New Zealand, USA, France, Germany, Italy, Holland, Denmark….nothing from the UK. And this year we’ll go back and there will be dairy products from the UK. One of the cheese specialists from Somerset, they’ve now got cheese into China.” He was told that instead of bringing a bottle of wine to each other’s houses, Chinese will now bring a litre of foreign milk instead. “In China because they have sadly had some very difficult food scares, there’s a real interest in foreign products, particularly in dairy. New Zealanders are a long way ahead of us in China.” But armed with a Food Is Great campaign launched last year, we are beginning to punch above our weight. “The campaign worked really well because you had the Royal Wedding, you had the Jubilee and you had the Olympics so there is a real interest in British goods and cachet and a trust in British quality.” And the UK is catching up. Paterson took the largest ever British food company delegation to food fairs in not just China but also New York, Moscow and, most recently, Germany. http://www.politicshome.com/uk/article/87089/owen_paterson_food_fighter.html Owen Paterson in China: diary of a trade mission After some well-publicised food safety issues the Chinese authorities have understandably introduced rigorous new standards. The dairy companies told me that China sees British goods as high quality and safe, and that imported milk products such as flavoured UHT can command up to £4 per litre in some Chinese stores. However, they would like more clarity on import and safety regulations, as well as a clearer idea of how “organic” is defined here. This is something that Defra and our Chinese counterparts can discuss, so we should be able to help here. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/owen-paterson-in-china-diary-of-a-trade-mission China Trading company wants to import British milk They would NOT like to import high quality UHT milk from the UK.( Ultra-high temperature processing, (less often) ultra-heat treatment (both abbreviated UHT), or ultra-pasteurization is the sterilization of food by heating it for an extremely short period, around 1–2 seconds, at a temperature exceeding 135°C (275°F), which is the temperature required to kill spores in milk.) http://opentoexport.com/opportunities/china-trading-company-wants-to-import-british-milk/ Chinese want to sell British milk at £3 per litre State-owned companies are approaching UK farmers direct asking for millions of litres of milk, at a time when some farmers struggle to make a profit http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/china-business/10376454/Chinese-want-to-sell-British-milk-at-3-per-litre.html China Increases Dairy Import Regulations31 December 2010 - See more at: http://www.thedairysite.com/news/33128/china-increases-dairy-import-regulations#sthash.ecH19uhP.dpuf http://www.thedairysite.com/news/33128/china-increases-dairy-import-regulations For countries and regions exporting raw milk and similar products to China for the first time, the AQSIQ required information about the country's or region's public health laws and regulations, veterinary services, safety and sanitation controls, and residue and animal disease monitoring. - See more at: http://www.thedairysite.com/news/33128/china-increases-dairy-import-regulations#sthash.ecH19uhP.dpuf Value-Added is Way to Go For Export Markets26 March 2013 - See more at: http://www.thedairysite.com/news/41991/valueadded-is-way-to-go-for-export-markets#sthash.epqUvBSH.dpuf UK – Global dairy market evolution means brighter times lie in wait for the UK’s dairy farmers.This is according to Farm Minister, David Heath, who, speaking to Dairy UK caveated that future success hinges on marketing to foreign consumers and the development of value-added processing lines. - See more at: http://www.thedairysite.com/news/41991/valueadded-is-way-to-go-for-export-markets#sthash.epqUvBSH.dpuf http://www.thebullvine.com/news/uk-position-compete-global-dairy-market/ UK in a position to compete on global dairy market Tuesday, January 14th, 2014 - See more at: http://www.thebullvine.com/news/uk-position-compete-global-dairy-market/#sthash.bn3Prfwx.dpuf http://www.thebullvine.com/news/uk-position-compete-global-dairy-market/ He said the traceability and production standards meant the UK was positively viewed by the rest of the world in the dairy marketplace. Mr Paterson claimed, however, the industry needed to find ways to add value to fresh dairy commodity products to take advantage of dairy opportunities both in the UK and further afield. “We are looking to have a market for fresh milk,” he said. “But the best opportunities are to add value to our products and sell as a premium.” As well as highlighting the possibilities for dairy expansion for UK products around the world, Mr Paterson claimed offering premium dairy products would allow the industry to take back some of the market share covered by imports.

       DEFRA'S LIES ARE EXPOSED AGAIN, AGAIN AND AGAIN!!!MAYBE THEY ARE CORRUPT!!!??? "We started thinking about it in 2012 when we went to Brussels. We WERE constantly BEING TOLD by Ministers that we COULDN'T VACCINATE CATTLE AGAINST TB because of RESTRICTIONS IMPOSED BY THE EU. "THEY said the EU WAS PROHIBITING the necessary FIELD TRIALS. We wanted to FIND OUT IF THIS WAS TRUE, And IT WASN'T!!! THEY WOULD LOVE US TO CACCINATE OUR CATTLE!!!THEY WANT US TO GET ON WITH IT!!!" There is a vaccine already - BCG - but it has a downside. It interferes with the mandatory tuberculin skin test, so you can't tell the difference between a vaccinated cow and one that is genuineless infected with BTB. What's needed is a reliable DIVA test. For the uninitiated, DIVA stands for 'Differentiating Infected from Vaccinated Animals', so a DIVA vaccine is one that makes it possible to tell the difference between infected and vaccinated animals. Lo and Behold! A DIVA test is developed Last year the AHVLA - that's Defra's Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency - announced they had developed a DIVA test. Field trials of the DIVA vaccine are needed before a full scale cattle vaccination programme can take place - trials that Defra had told us were prohibited by the EU. As an aside, Brian points out, members of the general public can become vaccinators by going on a 4-day AHVLA course, and then applying for a certificate of competence. Training is also provided by local badger groups on sett survey and other essentials - "so people can get involved without doing the full training course." We can only wonder why so much time has been wasted by Defra and its ministers. Had Defra - and its political masters including Owen Paterson - resisted the NFU's siren calls for badger culling, they could have been pushing forward the real solution to BTB. http://www.theecologist.org/Interviews/2311309/brian_may_from_rock_star_to_badger_champion.html

    • Baroness Neville-Rolfe, excellent, enjoyed listening to your words of wisdom. I feel more women should be involved and encouraged to take an interest in politics. Social media must be the way forward. Especially the figures in the Conservative Party. Best wishes.
