Information bTB (ibTB) is an online interactive mapping tool set up to help cattle farmers and their vets understand the level of bovine TB in their area. The map shows the locations of all TB breakdowns in England and Wales.
Use ibTB to find out about the bovine TB situation in your local area, and when purchasing cattle. You can search using a County Parish Holding Herd (CPHH) number or postcode, and the map also displays the location of Approved Finishing Units (AFUs). You can zoom in or out of the map to increase or decrease the level of detail. The map is currently updated every two weeks and there are a variety of ways to select and view data. On 4 May 2020, the following enhancements were made to ibTB:
- the map now shows ongoing and resolved TB breakdowns in England and Wales over the past 10 years (previously five years)
- tab added with useful links to other relevant websites about bovine TB
- an improved ‘help’ function
- clearer representation of the extent of a cluster of TB breakdowns on the map
