All farms that have a quarantine unit, whose animals are registered and identified as not carrying these diseases as a result of carrying out, are considered undamaged or free from brucellosis, tuberculosis and foot-and-mouth disease, in accordance with minimum hygienic-technical conditions, of the laboratory controls required by the related eradication regulations.


In order to effectively combat bovine tuberculosis and bovine, ovine and caprine brucellosis, guarantee sustainable livestock farming and protect public health from these diseases that can be transmitted from animals to humans and which are so common in our country, they use aid to undamaged farms. In addition to protecting animal health, healthy and quality milk production is obtained. Assistance is provided to undamaged farms for all dairy cattle that are not breeding bulls or males older than six months and that have a health certificate. The farm's cattle are examined by the regional/provincial directorates in terms of tuberculosis and brucellosis following the provisions of the Bovine Tuberculosis Regulation and the Brucellosis Eradication Regulation. The provincial directorates grant a Sanitary Certificate to the Undamaged Farms.

For the indemnity of bovine tuberculosis;
1. No animal should show clinical signs of bovine tuberculosis.
2. The infection must not have been detected in the first tuberculin test carried out on all animals older than six weeks on the farm, and in the second test carried out at six months (not 180 days) on animals older than six weeks a negative result is obtained again,
3. If the herd has been formed solely from animals belonging to officially tuberculosis-free herds and all animals older than six weeks of age are given a negative tuberculin test between sixty days and six months after arrival the farm is granted the status of farm free from tuberculosis.
4. The disease is declared when positive animals are detected in the first tuberculin test carried out on the farm, within the framework of the "Regulation of bovine tuberculosis", with the animals found positive removed from the herd and slaughtered in accordance with the provisions of the regulation compensation. Negative and suspect animals are evaluated at least 60 days apart, and once negative results are obtained in two consecutive tests, the disease is considered eradicated. Afterwards, indemnity work is resumed. For this, if in the first test carried out six months after the elimination of the positive animals no infection is detected and in the second test carried out six months after the first all the animals are negative, the condition of indemnity is obtained.

For the indemnity of bovine brucellosis;
1. For six months the herd must not show clinical signs of brucellosis,
2. If all animals older than twelve months obtain negative results in two consecutive serological tests for brucellosis carried out with a difference greater than three months and less than twelve months,
3. If animals older than twelve months from a brucellosis-free herd obtain negative results in the serological test carried out in the thirty days prior or in the thirty days after introduction into the herd, the condition of indemnity for brucellosis is granted.
4. In the event that undamaged animals from brucellosis-free herds are not tested for brucellosis within a period of thirty days, two tests will be carried out with a minimum of three months and a maximum of twelve months apart. All animals should be negative for both tests. At the request and expense of the breeder, a brucella test can be carried out for animals coming from abroad and in the process of nationalisation.
5. For the control of bovine brucellosis, in unvaccinated animals the Complement Fixation Test (CFT) should give negative results. If the animals are vaccinated and one year has not passed since vaccination, the CFT test result must be less than 30 EEC, or less than 20 EEC if more than a year has passed. Certificates will not be issued to farms with animals above these values ​​and, if they are prolonged in future tests, the certificates will be revoked. Animals whose CFT result is higher than the limits indicated above will be removed from the farm, slaughtered and processed following the provisions of the compensation regulation and the disease will be declared. If no abortion occurs within thirty days after the slaughter of the animals, the indemnity work is resumed. For this, all animals older than twelve months are re-examined and when the results are below the values ​​previously determined, a second test is carried out between three and twelve months later until the desired results are obtained, from this moment on recognises the farm as brucellosis-free.
6. If a test for brucellosis and tuberculosis is to be carried out after introduction into the farm, the animals must be physically separated and direct and indirect contact with other animals must be avoided until they are shown to be negative.
7. Animals with antibodies detected in a herd vaccinated against brucellosis will be isolated from the herd, and a second CFT test will be performed at least three months after the first blood draw, according to the amount of antibody detected in the examination. It will be confirmed as negative (-) or positive (+) in brucellosis (the absence or decrease of antibodies due to the immunity caused by the brucellosis vaccine being considered).
