Vets Meet to Strengthen BSE Control Efforts

12 June 2014

COLOMBIA – Some of South America’s foremost cattle veterinarians assembled in Santa Marta last week to discuss control protocols for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE).

Seven departments of the Caribbean region were represented at a training course which included detailed information on the nasal mucus of the disease.

Organised by the Colombian Agricultural Institute, the event has been part of a series of on-going efforts to improve knowledge transfer on the subject of BSE for fourteen years.

Meanwhile, Colombia remains one of only 25 countries where BSE is classed as negligible risk.
