OIE: Authorities Warn of Lumpy Skin Disease in Turkey

19 September 2013

TURKEY – A new outbreak of lumpy skin disease has been reported on a cattle farm in Maras, in the centre of the country.

Veterinary specialists were notified after eyewitness reports found an allergic reaction on the skin of cattle, thought to be an allergic reaction to ‘moldy feed’.

Samples were sent to Dr Pakdil Nihat of the Ministry for Agriculture for Rural Affairs after two animals died from a fever that was spreading through the herd of fifteen.

Control measures are now in place with a vaccination to follow.
