The article reports that livestock farmers have been urged not to import stock after a possible new strain of bluetongue was discovered in Holland in October 2008. The warning came as the Dutch ministry of agriculture imposed an export and breeding ban on animals susceptible to bluetongue after three animals tested positive for a strain not usually found in the country. As a precautionary measure, the Dutch farming minister imposed an export ban on bluetongue-susceptible animals from October 21, 2008.
