Active surveillance of bovine leucosis, IBR/IPV, bang plague

Monitoring programs and random testing

Section 18 (1) of the Federal Ministry of health created a surveillance programme, under which cattle after one of the AGES created and approved by the Federal Minister of health and are to undergo published sampling plan - the "official veterinary news" an appropriate investigation on the respective disease. The relevant legislation of the European Union are in principle to note and take into account all companies and stocks of a federal State, but also on the number of inquiries already carried out in the stock account is to take. Farms, which stock or stocks in the past with the IBR/IPV, bang disease or bovine leucosis were infected, plants with animal imports or intra-Community shipments, companies with strong animal transport and trade, as well as companies which equip community pastures, are preferred to provide in the sampling plan. While the inclusion of milk is fattening and mother cow farms to ensure the epidemiologically necessary extent.

(2) the carrying out of investigations in the framework of the monitoring programmes referred to in paragraph 1 must be in the form of spot checks after a risk-based sampling scheme created by the AGES of the Governor. At the Organization of the investigations is sure that in the course of sampling if possible also the investigations on other regulations adopted pursuant to the TGG monitored diseases can be performed.

(3) the studies are taking any necessary measures to combat other diseases, the level of the control procedure, the degree of contamination, the respective State of the science and taking to set the relevant legislation of the European Union and the OIE.

Carrying out the investigations and data transmission

§ 19. The Governor has to make sure that perform the serological tests on IBR/IPV, bang plague and bovine leucosis in the following way:



1 in those establishments provided in the sampling scheme in which no Milchprobennahme takes place all over two-year-old cattle - to examine ten per stock - using blood samples up to a maximum. These Blutprobennahme can be done in the context of the slaughter.

2. the sampling plan raw milk-producing provided farms with lactating cattle, where the number of female cattle over 24 months at least 30% in stock, except pure mother cow herds, are provided in Annex C not otherwise determined to examine samples of milk of lactating cattle.

3.

The data regarding the identity and traceability of the samples is to submit the investigation authority in accordance with the following provisions electronically: a) samples taken by official veterinarians and official veterinary surgeon shall be sent anyway, using the VI. While the identity of the samples and the traceability of the samples to the companies and individuals, or in the case of a sample of milk that comes from several lactating cattle, has given to the company during the examination of the samples to be.

(b) in the case of milk samples in accordance with article 20, para. 3, the data regarding the identity and traceability of samples - in particular the LFBIS number of affected operations, as well as, if necessary, the ear tag number of the affected animal - shall be indicated according to the investigating body.

(4) in stocks with more than 50 cattle, the number of lactating cattle is to determine. Determining the number can be omitted, if according to the VIS or cattle database no more than 50 female cattle over two years are in this operation. More than 50 female cattle are located according to the VIS or cattle database over two years in this operation, also taking blood samples is allowed instead of taking samples of milk.

(5) in the Organization of the investigations is sure that in the course of sampling any more required inspections and controls can be performed by veterinary legislation.

(6) when not properly marked cattle, subjected to a serological or arranged examination, is immediately to get the proper identification.

Diagnosis

§ 21 (1) the diagnosis has to be made by the competent official veterinarian or by the competent official veterinarian, taking into account the laboratory results and the epidemiological situation in the stock.

(2) non-negative laboratory results occur when the periodic analysis of milk samples, are clinically on tip-offs from IBR/IPV immediately all animals of the herd by the official veterinarian or by the veterinarian, to investigate bang disease or bovine leucosis, bearing in mind anyway, the epidemiological situation of the stock, as well as the emergence of latrines. It is then as follows:



1. display the surveys by the official veterinarian or the official veterinarian that the existence of an IBR/IPV-bang disease or Rinderleukoseerkrankung cannot be ruled out is, are immediately to take blood samples from all bovine animals from the age of six months and to investigate in the national reference laboratory for bovine leucosis, IBR/IPV, bang disease bovine leukosis, IBR/IPV, bang plague. The stock is pending the outcome of the evaluation study as IBR/IPV-, bangseuchen - or rinderleukoseverdächtig.

2. show the surveys by the official veterinarian or the official veterinarian, that no further evidence of existence of an IBR/IPV-bang disease or bovine leucosis disease are present, are immediately to take blood samples from all bovine animals from the age of two years and to investigate in the national reference laboratory for bovine leucosis, IBR/IPV, bang disease bovine leukosis, IBR/IPV, bang plague. The stock is pending the outcome of the evaluation study as IBR/IPV-, bangseuchen - or rinderleukoseverdächtig.

3. the epidemiological circumstances suggest that the result of the milk investigation falsely came by nonspecific reactions, a further investigation can perform of milk samples at a distance of no more than four weeks.

4. If a second sample of milk taken and this sample is again negative Z 1 or Z is depending on the output of epidemiological surveys in accordance with 2 to proceed.

(3) non-negative laboratory results occur in the testing of blood samples after the prescribed test methods, considered to be the stock pending the result of repeat - finding investigation IBR/IPV-, bangseuchen - or rinderleukoseverdächtig.

(4) suggest the epidemiological circumstances or other test methods, that the results of the blood sample examination incorrectly came after para 3 by nonspecific reactions, so the stock is considered as IBR/IPV-bang the animal rinderleukoseverdächtig, or it can be initiated an assessment examination, taking into account the operating situation by the official veterinarian or the official veterinarian, proceed as follows is where:



1. the affected animal is on the order of the district administrative authority immediately to feed diagnostic slaughter, which has been proven to make is as soon as possible (i.e. within no later than two weeks).

2. prior to diagnostic slaughter is the national reference laboratory for IBR/IPV-, to contact bang disease or bovine leucosis. In all cases, in any case, blood samples, as well as organs in accordance with Annex D on the occasion of the slaughter can be found. Further sampling may on the recommendation of the national of reference laboratories for IBR/IPV-, bang disease or bovine leucosis are made.

3. in the case of negative result of the investigations of the samples taken after no. 2, the relevant stock is at the earliest after the expiration of four weeks from the delivery of the slaughtered animal blood serological to investigate (finding investigation).

4. When negative determination results of the inventory, IBR/IPV is recognized as officially-, bangseuchen - or rinderleukosefrei.

5. positive or doubtful result, as well as renunciation of the diagnostic slaughter is to proceed according to the provisions in § 8 para 2 and 3.

3. the results of the examination of the blood sample not IBR/IPV positive, the blood sample is after the expiry of two weeks after revoking to repeat (few with blood sample). The result of the pair of blood sample, as well as the tests of the examination material is negative, the stock is officially recognized IBR/IPV free. The result of the examination is positive the stock is IBR/IPV contaminated. The result of an investigation is not clearly negative the stock is IBR/IPV suspicious. The animal may up to the completion of investigations (few with blood sample) be spent is still being slaughtered or killed.

(2) is by way of derogation from the provisions in section 21 (4) at the request of the Tierhalterin or of the keeper in historic Herdbook cattle and pregnant animals, which are used in programs for the preservation of endangered breeds of domestic animals or water due to epidemiological survey is to suspect, that the non-negative blood test results incorrectly came by nonspecific reactions and no epidemiological evidence of IBR/IPV disease exist in the inventory , to choose the following procedure:



1. the stock is considered to be suspicious.

2. the end of pregnancy is to be seen.

3. after calving are to send the placenta and blood-born calf and mother animal for testing for IBR/IPV's blood by the official veterinarian or by the veterinarian as soon as possible to the national reference laboratory for IBR/IPV and there anyway, to inspect IBR/IPV. These are allowed to answer the question, whether the pathogen in the inventory exists, validated the use of all appropriate and scientifically recognised methods, which are foreseen by the EU or the OIE.

4.
