Innovent (Scotland) Limited are near to completion of the installation of their Barrfly midge barrier for the revolutionary project in providing vector proof housing to protect prize cattle from Bluetongue virus carried by vector midges. A collaboration with Genus ABS, Dr Alison Blackwell, Texol and Calor has resulted in the first project of it’s kind in Europe. With the project almost at completion, we are looking forward to evaluating the results which will be colated by Dr Blackwell and the staff at Genus ABS.

The picture shows the Innovent Barrly midge barrier installed at one of the openings in the “vector free” cattle housing.
