BSE hits Irish research station

BSE hits Irish research station

A HERD of 560 cattle – and three years-worth of work – will be destroyed at an Irish research station after a cow was found to be suffering from BSE. The Dairy Research Product Centre at Moorepark, Co Cork, was using its herd in work aimed at increasing milk output to 2000 gallons an acre of grassland by the year 2000.

Irish attempts to re-open its export markets will be knocked back. BSE is declining in Ireland, but it has still been the second-worst hit country in the EU, after Britain.

BSE hits Irish research station

A LEADING dairy research station in County Cork, Ireland, has fallen victim to BSE.

Moorepark station is to lose its 550 cattle after the disease was found in a four-year-old cow. Now the herd will have to be destroyed in accordance with Irish government policy.

The station carries out research into producing milk from high-yielding cows, fed on mainly grass diets. The news comes as Ireland is struggling to re-open export markets in Libya, Iran and Iraq for its beef.

BSE is declining in Ireland, with 41 cases to the end of July. Numbers are said to be falling each month. Ireland has had 229 cases since 1989 – the second highest in the European Union after the UK. The station will be allowed to restock one month after the herd is destroyed.
