Foot and Mouth restrictions mean no word regarding Belgian Blue sale

With Foot and Mouth movement restrictions likely to be in place for some time, British Belgian Blue Cattle Society secretary has said he is unsure as to what the restrictions will mean for next month’s society sale to be held at Chelford.

“It is obviously too early for any decisions to be made, so have no information as to what this will mean for the sale.

“While the source fo the outbreak looks like being linked to the Pirbright lab, we must all keep our guard up and put in place strict bio-security measures on farm as well as being extra vigilant, looking for symptoms.”
