Tissue Sampling Tags


An important tool to help you towards a BVD-Free future

  • The sample is analysed to determine the BVD status of the individual animal
  • Infected animals can be culled
  • BVD free animals can be recorded and show on a national database

Available in 3 sizes:

  • TST Senior
  • TST Junior
  • TST Button

Ideal for tagging and testing new-born calves and has an advantage over blood samples (cannot be tested below 4 weeks of age) or bulk milk samples (only for lactating cows, ignores calves, heifers and bulls).

For retrospective testing (i.e. if you are just starting your BVD eradication programme) older animals already officially tagged can be tested using the tissue sample unit.
