Advantages to submitting TB test results online

Practices submitting online realise advantages because they

  • Can access ‘real time’, up to date TB work instructions and work lists from APHA
  • Produce working forms pre-populated with ear-tag numbers to record results on farm
  • Can see test dates/results which help to identify animals not eligible for testing

These realised advantages reduce

  • Overheads such as paper and postage costs
  • Time needed to check test histories
  • Risk of tests going overdue
  • Delay in lifting movement restriction
