TB Research Fund.
In conjunction with British Camelids Ltd, the British Alpaca Society has established a ring-fenced fund for research into bTB in camelids. This is in addition to the funding already given to Defra/VLA to carry out research to try to validate a number of bTB tests.
Anyone who wishes to make a donation to this vital work may do so by sending a cheque made payable to British Camelids Limited to the Association Secretary.
