To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many herds have been affected by bovine immunodeficiency virus.

No specific disease condition caused by bovine immunodeficiency virus in cattle in the field has been identified in this or any other country. Investigations are continuing in a herd in Cheshire where cattle with serological evidence of exposure to BIV and a range of other common ailments have been identified. Investigations have also been carried out on one farm in Scotland.
