All samples must be sent to a lab designated by BVDFree.
*A herd status will be assigned after two years of testing for BVD under the scheme.
Virus = Antigen/PCR
(Ab) = Antibody
Please speak to your vet to discuss specific testing options for your herd.
In herds that are actively controlling BVD it is still recommended to use bulk milk antibody tests to monitor status where appropriate. However, due to the complexity of interpreting an antibody response in the presence of vaccine use and historic infection, the test is not included in the BVDFree testing choices. Bulk milk testing can still be a valuable tool to monitor status with careful veterinary interpretation on a case by case basis.
