Montbeliarde UK bluetongue outbreak statement

Montbeliarde UK is disappointed to learn of an outbreak of Bluetongue recently in the UK, which is reported to be in Montbeliarde cattle imported from France.

The society would just like to say it was unaware of this importation, and it has not been through a supplier or source recommended by ourselves.
We would urge any members and non members to use a reputable and recommended supplier when sourcing any Montbeliarde stock either in the UK or abroad.
If more information is required of recommended suppliers please contact the secretary.
