Tubercullosis

“Scientists have found a clear correlation between more intensive farming systems and cattle falling ill with TB. … Farms with herds of 150 cattle or more are 50% more likely to suffer an outbreak of TB than herds with fewer than 50 animals. … The researchers also find a clear correlation between the use of maize for silage cattle feed and the incidence of TB.” (http://www.soilassociation.org/news/newsstory/articleid/8547/intensive-farming-link-with-bovine-tb)

This news will only exacerbate government’s cognitive dissonance regarding badgers. It will be filed under ‘more evidence that badgers, through herding cattle into small barns and feeding them maize, are infecting them with bTB.’
