Turkey: New FMD Strain Discovered in Turkiye

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   TU2023-0008

In March, the Turkish Ministry of Agriculture & Forestry (MinAF) detected for the first time an SAT-2 strain of foot and mouth disease (FMD) in cattle. The cases are located in the eastern half of Türkiye, though media reports suggest there may be additional cases in other parts of the country. In response to the detection, the Ministry of Agriculture & Forestry (MinAF) has instituted various measures to halt the spread of the virus. The Turkish livestock industry is worried that the virus will impact meat and milk yields, thereby driving retail prices for these products even higher.
