Free Schmallenberg (SBV) tests

Farmers in Scotland are being offered free tests for the Schmallenberg virus (SBV) in animals imported from areas where the virus is circulating.        

The Scottish Government already funds the SAC and MRI to investigate clinical cases where SBV infection is a possible diagnosis.  The cost to farmers is the standard Scottish Government subsidised rate for such investigations.

NFUS have now announced additional support for SAC Veterinary laboratories to test free of charge up to four blood samples per farm from either cattle and sheep moving from areas known to be affected by SBV.  Cattle and sheep moving to Scotland from the area south of a line from Lincolnshire, to the Severn Estuary, will be eligible for the testing.
