Farmers and stock keepers in the area have seen the destruction and expense brought by Foot and Mouth Disease Virus and Bluetongue virus in the recent past. These viruses have now been followed by the midge and tick borne virus, Schmallenberg virus.

Due to the possibility that the virus may bring significant production losses, I have written to environmental officers at the council to ask that they liaise with DEFRA to make sure that our farmers have the best possible statutory protection should this virus afflict their livestock.
