Volunteer testing

As a breeder selling beef bulls to the dairy industry, is it possible to voluntarily test for M Bovis so as to give a guarantee to the farmers that they buy M Bovis free bulls? Can you test 'the farm' or do you need to test each animal?

Talk to your vets some are now able to send in samples to be tested, needs to be a sample of around 150 animals for dry stock.
Just remember the test only tells you the animal is not shedding mycoplasma on that day.
