Fast-Spreading Animal Virus Leaps Europe, UK borders

Post  Tess on Wed Feb 08, 2012 4:06 pm

A newly identified disease is moving rapidly through livestock in Europe. The disease makes adult livestock only mildly ill, but causes lambs, kids and calves to be born dead or deformed.

The virus has been found on 29 farms in the UK, and several hundred in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and France.

Agricultural media are starting to record the economic fallout, including a Russian ban on European livestock, and the possibility of a ban on the shipping of live animals...

Time to stop wasting fields on grazing and start growing crops instead. This is very important news and I'm surprised it's not in the mainstream media. If this spreads it means livestock will die out. No more MacDonalds! Smile
