    Les premiers foyers de maladie hémorragique épizootique (MHE) ont été déclarés en France en septembre 2023 dans des élevages de bovins du sud-ouest. Cette maladie infectieuse due à un virus est transmise exclusivement par des moucherons du genre Culicoïdes, les mêmes que ceux de la fièvre catarrhale ovine (FCO).

      According to the Dordogne prefecture, 16 cattle farms are affected by MHE, epizootic hemorrhagic disease, in the department. No animal died, according to the health defense group. The State is deploying two exceptional aid schemes for the farmers concerned.

      At the beginning of November, there were three cases in Dordogne. There are now 16 farms affected by MHE , the disease which affects cattle, in the department. No animal would have died from this virus transmitted by midges and whose symptoms resemble a serious flu, with abscesses and ulcers.

      According to Nicolas Corboz, director of the health defense group (GDS), only a few cattle are affected on each farm concerned, we are talking about 3-4 cows maximum . The cases were detected in the municipalities of Beauronne, Eymet, Lanouaille, La Roche-Chalais, Lavaur, Mauzens-et-Miremont, Montcaret, Naussannes, Pontours, Saint-Cyr-les-Champagnes, Saint-Martial-de-Nabirat, Saint-Pompont, Soulaures and Thénac.

      Selon la préfecture de Dordogne, 16 élevages bovins sont touchés par la MHE, la maladie hémorragique épizootique, dans le département. Aucun animal n'en est mort, selon le groupement de défense sanitaire. L'État déploie deux dispositifs d'aides exceptionnelles pour les agriculteurs concernés.
