ABSTRACT
This article states that new rules to allow the movement of livestock from bluetongue "restricted zones" to bluetongue "free zones" have been agreed in Brussels, Belgium where the seat of the European Union is located. Until now, farmers have been prevented from carrying out such stock movements, except direct to slaughter. But the new regulation provides for farm-to-farm movements between zones at certain low risk times of year and/or when a vaccine is ready.
