Bovine disease control, Luxembourg

The InterTrace database is used as a veterinary services information system in Luxembourg, supporting the management of bovine disease control programmes, including para-tuberculosis and bluetongue disease. Using sampling policies the database generates sampling lists for veterinarians allowing the veterinary service to monitor the progress of disease control activities over time.

Disease test results are received electronically from the laboratories and used to determine the disease status of farms, as well as the management of movement restrictions and future testing requirements.
