A large sheep flock screened over a two-year period showed active spreading of Schmallenberg virus (SBV) during the summers of 2011 and 2012. Transplacental infections were observed during the two associated lambing periods (the winters of 2012 and 2013). Analysis of small (S) segment sequences of 38 SBV-positive samples, collected during periods of viral spreading and lambing revealed intra-herd sequences diversity and sub-consensus variability occurring after transplacental infections.
