ORISTANO – The derogation for the movement of ruminants on the regional territory has arrived after the total block taken in recent days after the first European case of the haemorrhagic disease of deer found in Arbus. The derogation, signed by the director of the Veterinary Public Health and Food Safety Service Antonio Montisci, concerns intra-regional movements “for urgent reasons of animal welfare and custody, with particular reference to the movement towards the grazing codes or return to the farm from the same pastures”.

“A first good news that we requested in the first meeting of the Crisis Unit which immediately demonstrates its effectiveness” says the president of Coldiretti Sardinia who had requested its establishment immediately after the official outbreak of the deer disease.

The derogation is granted “exclusively for urgent and proven welfare, custody and grazing reasons and subject to agreement between the departure and destination veterinary services at least 48 hours before movement”.

The hemorrhagic crisis of the deer is one of the main topics promoted in recent weeks by Coldiretti throughout the region. It was also discussed this morning in Senorbì where around 150 farmers and breeders were present for a virus that is attacking above all the beef cattle sector, one of the excellences of Sardinian zootechnics which involves around 7,800 farms with over 210 thousand heads, including over 80 thousand in the territory of Nuoro and Ogliastra, 45,600 in Sassari, 35,500 in Gallura, 25,500 in Oristano and about 24,500 in southern Sardinia.

“As we have repeatedly reiterated, it is essential to intervene immediately to meet the very high management costs faced by farmers who find themselves with calves stranded on the farm – reiterates the director of Coldiretti Sardegna Luca Saba -, with high prices and with the costs of feed doubled, they seriously risk having to close the companies”.
