Best North/South Collaborative Innovation Award
The ‘Best North/South Collaborative Innovation’ award went to Animal Health Ireland from Leitrim. Animal Health Ireland has developed a unique industry-led national eradication programme for a disease of cattle on the island of Ireland. Bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV) is a recognized cause of significant financial losses in cattle production in Ireland. The BVD eradication programme has already successfully completed one year of testing and when complete will allow farmers to avoid an estimated loss due to this disease of €100 million annually.
