Information from ACIAR supported research has led to the development of a successful and widely-used vaccine for bovine ephemeral fever (BEF) - a disease which causes widespread economic losses in China. This report assesses the impacts of a number of completed projects designed to improve diagnosis and control of BEF in cattle and bluetongue in sheep.
