Sample text

For example, in a submission to the EU regarding the 2000 outbreak of FMD in Uruguay (whose economy relies largely on agriculture and agricultural exports), Paul Sutmoller (2002) notes that ‘The temporary interruption of the export markets and the pronounced decrease of livestock prices proved very costly for Uruguay in terms of economic losses by the livestock production sector and the national trade. In particular, the financial losses of meat and dairy producers have had great negative impact on the national economy.

In addition, 380 containers with meat in transatlantic transit were returned for security reasons. ’ There also exists a tension in countries which use vaccination as a control method but are then bound by the longer quarantine noexport periods laid down in the International Animal Health Code (see Anderson Inquiry, 2002:122–123). While Britain was debating and ultimately rejecting the use of vaccination as a control method in 2001, a pandemic of FMD in South America was being tackled by means of vaccination, isolation and moderate culling.

We introduced a five minute foot and mouth bulletin that ran seven times a day at the peak of the outbreak. (Graham, 2001: 5) The extract and quotation above convey something of the nature, scale and devastation of the 2001 FMD disaster in Cumbria and how it was experienced by Cumbrian rural communities, households and individuals. How did individuals and groups endure daily disruption and what was for many profound loss, and for many more, the fear of loss? For most there was an altered everyday reality that has left a lasting memory.
