ABSTRACT
The article reports that farmers in Great Britain with bluetongue-susceptible animals are being advised to plan their movement requirements in preparation for tighter restrictions to be introduced on March 16, 2008. The decision of the British Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs is based on an assessment of meteorological data and historic vector trapping which provides evidence that the midge vectors for bluetongue will re-emerge at around this time.
