Ceva Animal Health, the manufacturer of Cevac Chlamydia, has launched an interactive map to help demonstrate to farmers that Enzootic Abortion of Ewes (EAE) is a real threat and encourage them to discuss vaccination with their veterinary surgeon.

The interactive map, which has been launched as part of Ceva’s ‘For Flock’s Sake – Vaccinate!’ awareness campaign, uses data from the company’s on-farm testing for Chlamydophila abortus, the bacterium that causes EAE.

Ceva says the map shows that the disease is present across the UK, although cases may well be much higher than shown, as the map is only based on farms that the company has tested positive for the bacterium.

Positive EAE cases on farms are recorded by county on the map, so farmers can check for EAE in their area. 

The map, available at www.eaemap.co.uk, will be updated regularly as new farms test positive for EAE.

Stephenie Clarke, product manager at Ceva Animal Health, said: "Our new EAE interactive map will be updated on an ongoing basis and will be a useful tool to ensure that farmers are up-to-date with EAE cases throughout the UK."
