Text (summary): 

A programme of on-farm vaccination should be carried out to reduce the number of outbreaks of lumpy skin disease in high risk regions, according to a new report by the European Food Safety Authority Panel on Animal Health and Welfare (AHAW) carried out for the European Commission, writes Chris Harris.

The report also calls for farmers and veterinarians to be trained in the clinical identification of lumpy skin disease in order to reduce underreporting.
