There is support for Cornish farmers worried about a new virus that kills newborn lambs in seconds
Duchy College is offering funding and advice on infections like Schmallenberg.
Three cases have been confirmed here.
Martin Howlett has sheep near Callington and tells the Westcountry Tonight we need research into vaccines: "I'd far rather have prevention rather than cure. Unfortunately with these exotic diseases that keep coming across to the UK, like Schmallenberg at the moment and Bluetone previously, they're both so new to us that we really are in the lap of the Gods and rely very much on science".
Paul Ward is in charge of the Healthy Livestock Project and says, "Key at the minute is finding out as much as we can about the disease and remembering that we do have top level research institutions in this country, now connecting very well with Europe. Our job is to make sure those messages get out as soon as they've been developed".
