As you will be aware, the way that in calf cattle are valued for TB Compensation is due to change.


From 1 November 2018, in-calf cattle that are valued for TB compensation purposes will require a veterinary diagnosis declaration that has been signed by an official veterinarian in order for that animal to be valued as being in-calf. The veterinary diagnosis declaration may be up to 3 months old at the date of valuation, and must relate to the ear tag number of the animal concerned. The veterinary diagnosis declaration must be presented to the valuer at valuation, and will be sent by the valuer to the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) with the other relevant valuation paperwork.
