NORTHERN IRELAND: Ministers Walsh and Rodgers announce further joint measures on FMD
The Ministers with responsibility for Agriculture in the Republic of Ireland and in Northern Ireland, Mr Joe Walsh T.D. and Mrs Bríd Rodgers, MLA, yesterday jointly announced further measures to combat the threat of Foot and Mouth Disease. The Ministers have agreed to the immediate precautionary slaughter of all sheep within, and between, 3km radius zones centred on the sites of the outbreaks in Meigh, County Armagh and Proleek, County Louth. The purpose of this cull is to eradicate any Foot and Mouth Disease virus which may be present in the sheep population in the areas where the two outbreaks occurred. The cull will commence as soon as possible and the normal compensation arrangements will apply.
