Ausies' Not Concerned about Scrapie Case

No concern about scrapie case

Thursday, 19/02/2009

Australia's sheep industry isn't worried about a case of scrapie found in a British research flock.

The two infected sheep originated from New Zealand, and Australian authorities say there's no implication for our scrapie-free status.

Scrapie affects the nervous system and is related to mad cow disease.

Ron Cullen, from the Sheepmeat Council of Australia, doesn't believe there any risk here.

"Every time something like this happens you re-check, you review your own procedures, but from our point of view I don't see this having any implications."
