TB reactor cattle in the Irish Republic by county


Number of TB reactor cattle in the Irish Republic by county

In the above graph the percentage of reactor cattle was calculated by dividing the number of reactors by the number of animals in the county. This data was extracted from datasets downloaded from the References 1 and 2. All these datasets are archived in Reference 3. Data for the year 2004 is currently excluded. Enquiries to DAFF are currently plannned regarding why cattle reactors are substantially higher for this year than for other years.
