  • Re: Schmallenberg virus : new Akabane-like virus in cattle, sheep and goats in Europe

    Hardly any new locations with SBV in sheep reported; number of reported new locations with SBV in cattle seems to slow down.

      Présence du virus de Schmallenberg en France

      6 avril 2012

      La présence du virus de Schmallenberg vient d’être confirmée dans 128 nouvelles exploitations.

      Au total ce sont 1176 élevages qui sont donc touchés dans 47 départements (01, 02, 03, 08, 10, 14, 16, 17, 18, 21, 23, 24, 27, 28, 33, 36, 37, 41, 45, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 76, 79, 80, 86, 87, 88, 89).

      Il s’agit essentiellement d’élevages ovins, mais on compte 104 élevages bovins, 12 élevages caprins et 2 élevages ovin/caprin.

          For this year the SBV problem seems to be almost over on sheepfarms in the Netherlands. It is slowing down on cattlefarms, but not over yet.


          Netherlands: Schmallenberg virus confirmed in 244 farms

          Update april 6, 2012

          Number of suspected premises : 1,385

          Number of confirmed premises : 244


          Cattle holdings: 132

          8 cattle holdings were found to be positive from bloodsamples taken last autumn. These holdings are NOT included in the total number
          Testing of more cattle-samples from last year revealed positive results of 70% . It is not know yet how what % of positive cows had malformed calves.

          Sheep holdings : 106

          Preliminary testresults indicate sheep in affected areas probably are positive for 70% or more.


          Goat holdings : 6

                  In Germany as in other affected countries, it seems we can see the same downtrend in new infections, especially in sheep.

                    13 April: Schmallenberg virus: further update on GB testing results

                    There are now 243 UK farms reporting SBV: 28 in cattle and 215 in sheep. This is an increase of only four farms since before the Easter break. All farms are within the recognised risk counties in England.

                    The decline in the numbers of reporting farms is in line with all EU Member States, where the sheep reports have declined as lambing in ‘at risk’ sheep (those at a critical time of gestation when infection can impact on the foetus) draws to an end. This is also in line with Defra’s own predictions considering UK farming practices and estimated time of infection occurring in the UK. We continue to expect to see cases in cattle into early summer.

                            20 April – Schmallenberg virus: further update on GB testing results

                            There are now 249 UK farms reporting SBV: 32 in cattle and 217 in sheep.

                            This is an increase of two farms in cattle and two farms in sheep. All farms are within the recognised risk counties in England.

                            The decline in the numbers of reporting farms is in line with all EU Member States, where the sheep reports have declined as lambing in ‘at risk’ sheep (those at a critical time of gestation when infection can impact on the foetus) draws to an end. This is also in line with Defra’s own predictions considering UK farming practices and estimated time of infection occurring in the UK. We continue to expect to see cases in cattle into early summer.

                              La pr&#233;sence du virus de Schmallenberg vient d’&#234;tre confirm&#233;e dans 71 nouvelles exploitations.

                              Au total ce sont 1303 &#233;levages qui sont donc touch&#233;s dans 49 d&#233;partements (01, 02, 03, 08, 10, 14, 16, 17, 18, 21, 23, 24, 27, 28, 33, 36, 37,39, 41, 45, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 76, 77, 79, 80, 86, 87, 88, 89).
