Additional Information: I developed the original idea, supervised the research and co-wrote the paper. The first author was my graduate student. We demonstrate that visits by badgers to farm buildings constitute a risk of transmission of TB to cattle. As a result, Defra has added farm biosecurity to its TB control strategy.
