Schmallenberg Virus - the missing UK goat farm



Here is the evidence that Defra, Britain's notorious agricultural ministry, have been holding back information on Schmallenberg virus - SBV, in Britain.

The Dutch knew today that goats were infected in Britain a fortnight ago, never mind the other discrepancies.

This follows a long pattern of deliberate deception by Britain's corrupt government veterinarians.

The Dutch Government report is here

“as at 25 January there have been confirmed cases at 32 sheep farms, 1 cattle farm and 1 goat farm in the United Kingdom.”


This from Defra’s site. Even a child could see there are no goats.

On February 7 AHVLA released results from further testing which reveal the presence of Schmallenberg virus in a further 22 submissions which means that the disease has now been identified in 33 submissions from 29 farms. Today’s results show the first positive case in a bovine in West Sussex. There is also a first positive submission from a premises in Hertfordshire.  All other positive cases were in counties where previous cases have occurred.

The Health Protection Agency has published information aboutschmallenberg virus.

Update on 23 January 2012

AHVLA reported the presence of Schmallenberg virus (SBV) on four sheep farms in Norfolk, Suffolk and East Sussex. Last week we obtained samples from animals with clinical signs consistent with SBV infection via our Regional Laboratory network. The samples were analysed at the Virology Laboratory, AHVLA Weybridge based on information provided by the Netherlands and the Friedrich Loeffler Institute.
Specific RT-PCR products were detected by two independent means from two different genes of SBV. Along with the sequence information we have obtained, all combined with the clinical picture seen, we consider this now provides a sufficient level of laboratory confirmation to conclude that SBV has been detected in GB sheep.
