FMD and Bluetongue Update

12 October 2007

Markets within the Bluetongue Control and Protection Zones will be permitted from midnight Sunday 14 October.  The movement of susceptible animals from within the Control and Protection Zones to approved slaughterhouses outside the Bluetongue Zones will also be permitted from this time.   Conditions apply and markets within the FMD Risk Area will remain closed.

From Monday, slaughterhouses outside the Bluetongue Zones will be able to apply to the Meat Hygiene Service to be approved to take susceptible animals for slaughter from within the Control and Protection Zones, provided they can fulfil specified criteria.  Movements of susceptible animals to approved slaughterhouses will also be subject to certain conditions, to minimise the risk of disease spread. These changes, as with all aspects of disease control measures, have been discussed and developed with the Core Group of industry stakeholders.
