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

    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 296 farms

    Update april 20, 2012

    Number of suspected premises : 1,538

    Number of confirmed premises : 296


    Cattle holdings: 183

    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 : 107

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


    Goat holdings : 6

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

            There are now 251 UK farms reporting SBV: 33 in cattle and 218 in sheep.

            This is an increase of one farm in cattle. 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.
