The article reports that European Union (EU) veterinarians have agreed on stricter rules that will limit the movement of live cattle and sheep out of bluetongue-restricted areas. Another condition is that, where animals have been vaccinated, at least 50 days must have passed before they can move out of a zone, to ensure they are not infective. This applies to both breeding and slaughter animals, and covers both the protection and surveillance zones until the end of 2008, when it will be reviewed.
