Welcome to this week's newsletter

Editorial: GB Bluetongue Free

Bluetongue restrictions have been lifted in Great Britain. This bluetongue free status means that animals exported from Great Britain to bluetongue free countries, mainly the Republic of Ireland, will not require vaccination or meet any other bluetongue requirements.

In Ireland, milk quota has been allocated to 53 new entrants, who have previously not held quota. The Irish Minister of Agriculture said that it was heartening to see interest in the dairy sector, despite the challenging times.

The Minister also took the opportunity to confirm that a New Entrants Scheme will accompany each of the two remaining milk quota increases under the Health Check agreement. These are due to come into effect on 1 April 2012 and 1 April 2013.

An emergency regulation aimed at stifling the spread of trichomoniasis, a protozoal disease that can cause abortion and infertility in cattle, went into effect earlier this week in Arkansas.

Producers are advised to vaccinate cows and test all bulls, as the disease can cause significant calf crop losses.

China's chief veterinarian has met with Fonterra CEO Andrew Ferrier this week, to discuss ways in which Fonterra can help improve the Chinese dairy industry.
